1. Summer Vase
by
Pal's Creations

The pieces in this water pitcher are a combination of old china, and my first everyday kitchen set that I had in 1968! The purple focal is from a ceramic flower pot that my mom made when I used to teach ceramics. The flower pot broke, and I didn't want to throw it away,so now I still have portions of my mom's ceramic flower pot to cherish once again.

3. Summer Afternoon Tea Pot
by
Callas Mosaics

"When I was little, I dreamed of small imaginary beings. Back in my day we didn't have much for television...let alone computers. We made up things. There was a woods behind our house that we would explore. I remember this huge tree. It was a perfect climbing tree. I'm sure our mother would have had a heart attack, if she known we climbed that high. We would go way up to the top, so we could see the ground, all around us. We played for hours, in great expectation, that one summer afternoon, we would find where the imaginary beings lived. Well, we never found any. Through my mosaics, I'm able to recreate some of those thoughts and ideas I had as a small child. After all...isn't it some of those dreams and ideas that keep us young?"


4. Love on a Summer Afternoon, Pendant & Ring
by
Amanda Edwards

So many people plan their weddings for summer afternoons... the flowers are all out, weather is wonderful, traveling is easy for guests. For the PieceMaker's Summer Afternoon mosaic challenge, I created this pendant & ring set... celebrating the (slowly but surely) changing times... where 2 people, gay or not, can be married, according to law, and celebrate their love with family and friends, any summer afternoon they choose. :)
