Made the girl first, she was lonely and wanted a companion...so she got one.
Love em! Wasn't sure what to expect when I saw the post title /hides.
Oh MT - these are soooooooo darlin'. Glad to see you back - have missed you a LOT. There's an artist who makes similar pot ladies on Flickr. Her pots are turned the other way so she can plant inside them. Yours are sooooo cute. I tried one like hers, and the face isn't very noticeable. I've been meaning to try another one. There's a world of things we could use on these. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the crown on the second one. Is that an old light fixture? Can't quite make out the top on the orange one.
WOW!!! Love these!!! I too have seen the faces somewhere and was inspired!! It's like using the whole pieces of things...true recycling! All those items I usually throw away! I too LOVE the "crown"!!
Sorry Slow I haven't been on here...I've also been caught up in fb groups...have been painting too rather than mosaics. The head on potgirl is a pile of thinset with shell necklaces and sea spines poked in. And, yes the crown is from a stained glass lamp that I took apart for the glass. I thought of you Slow when I did that...I've kept it for a few years knowing that someday it will come in handy...and it did. Potguy's ears are brass pipe fittings. They will keep watch over my greenhouse. ..There's a gal in I think Brazil who makes a lot of faces, she teaches classes.
Yes, I've seen the Brazillian lady who does these faces. Giving y'all a link to one on Flickr too. Look at her album to see some fabulous works.
How do you cut your cups?
I use my tile saw for cutting the tile and the cups. It works great for that...thnx
hahaha those are GREAT!
I LOVE these and Slo, I am glad you posted the link to the other ones, they are so inspiring and make me want to make one!
So cute! Makes me want to make some too!

Sure you can add them. They are on my pinterest as well. I think under Dottie Gillespie.
