Here's your full shot Hayden...

Not exactly a fish Hayden. I wanted to get the feel of leaves floating in a stream. I love this bathroom when its clean and tidy AND the tp is on the holder.

Beautiful mosaics, Mary.
Are these tiles you fired yourself? I love the leaf design.

Man, that looks so good that any other experiences I've had with bathrooms would go to the crapper.

Sorry, dumb silly joke. It wasn't punny at all. er, I mean funny. (sigh, I'd better get some sleep)

Seriously though. I really think it looks great.

Dawn- thanks. You too.

Krimo- Always from a kiln. Never buy. Thank you.

Y- No you're right. I have high expectations for bathrooms since this one. :)

It's more than just decorative, It really creates a calm and elegant space. You did an outstanding job on both design and execution.

You've gained enormously in both vision and skill during the time I've been coming by. Very nice work.. and don't worry about the kids. When they have bathrooms in their own houses it's a lesson learned fast.

Do you work tile professionally? I've done "paint by numbers" work in the foyer of my old house. I used left-over and broken pieces above the mantle to create "I dunno," but the new owners liked it. I laugh because it was nothing like what you've created. So beautiful!

Hope you don't mind if I add you to my links Mon or Tue, after I gather OKs from others.

B- Let me just say one more thing re the tp: I just got home from moving LIsa to NYC. The part of travel I hate is public bathrooms so I couldn't wait to get to my own. Betmo, there was not one, not even a square of tp in the house. Lord knows what has gone down the pipes of my house this weekend.
Thank you for the compliment. I do love this little house. I always think I would have to move it with me if I left the area.

CM- Hopefully I can un-ruffle my feathers now that Lisa is settled in.

Contempt- I think you'd get over it. You know...nature and all.

Bluebella- Thank you.

No- I just had to update. I wait years for something I think looks passable.

Carol- Sorry:(

Mariamaria- It all started with a piece of batik fabric.

Susan- This was actually my very first design and I can't exactly take credit for it all. I showed my mentor the fabric and she showed me how to imitate it on the sink and tiles. I did design the entire bathroom, colors and all and I must say I am very proud of it. I made the shower curtain and the roman shade I made from the fabric that inspired the whole thing. I even have each of my childrens names in the swirl on the floor.

Hayden- Maybe a floor mosaic for you?

E4E- Thanks!

Contempt- I do. Not a lot but I do. It is my goal to do more. Just hard to fit it in w/the kids but I'm down to one at home and he gets his license next summer at which time I will have so much more time.
I'm sure your mosaic was beautiful. Have you ever seen one that wasn't? I hope you have pictures of it. I would love to see it.

Antonio- Thank you!!!!

Mary, just back from Esalen, prowling hungrily around the art barn - admiring the very large mosaic sculptured python sliding through the garden, the vast carved wooden door with bright-painted shapes added for additional relief....

and dreaming of my next home, wondering if I could do a marmoleum-linoleum mosaic floor.... My understanding is that it's difficult to cut, but it should be a fascinating material to work with.

What is it about floors? I'm always wanting to paint them or something.
