impetus for this large pot.                                       were used for sections around it so                            particularly liked the triangular

Small letter tiles spelled out the                              that it can be turned to give  a                                      pieces and the use of mirrors to

one is multi-cloured and random on                            motif.                                                                                   and deep red. The pattern is repeated

the main body of the pot, with a                                                                                                                               all around the pot so, unlike the others

repeating pattern of glass and                                                                                                                                  pictured, it looks the same from any

                                     Believe it or not these are three views of the same pot!    I call it my "3-way pot" and the idea is that you can rotate

                                     it  to either match the plant in it or just ring the changes.  Loads of big plate fragments used in this one as it's quite large.
