Layed out…..

As I started to lay out all the components on my mosaic bench, I started to worry I didn’t have enough puzzle pieces to complete the main design!  My panic slowly was alleviated as the design came together.

gardenbenchlayedoutNow the real fun begins!  Breaking tiles and layering the colors in the background.  Early mornings or evenings will be best for this as our daytime temperatures have started to hit highs of 90+ already. My mastic will dry out too quickly if I try to get started in the heat.   This will be slow going, the journey is always worth it though.  Anticipation and patience go hand in hand during this phase of my bench………………….Cyn


About designbycyn

Sonoma County, California ceramic enthusiasts Cyn and Steven Gradek have worked in the clay medium since 1996. They had a retail store where they held classes and provided the essentials for fellow ceramic enthusiasts. The business evolved into producing for other retail outlets and artist. Which quickly grew and they closed the retail storefront and concentrated on the wholesale business. With their 3 children raised and on their own, they had time to pursue their own creativity. Cyn learned how to embroider from her Grandma Cirner at a young age. After that she found sewing, cross stitching, crocheting, well you get the jist, LOL. She hasn't met a craft that she hasn't liked. Blogging was suggested by her youngest daughter, Colleen. At first it was a battle to get her to try it, but eventually Cyn started to enjoy the exercise. The blog on Cyn's website was limiting, so Colleen got her started with Wordpress. Hope you enjoy her Adventures with Creativity!
