Head vase

I wanted to learn to make faces out of broken dishes.  I learned a lot while making these faces.  Next, on to planters.  I love the ones where the plants look like the hair.  Good sized face pots typically cost over $100!  So I'm hoping to get my technique down and make some of those next.

This is a small vase with 2 flatish sides that I picked up at a yard sale.  I had the weldbond glue and the grout and the dishes.  If this was for outdoors I would have attached the dish shards with either silicone or thinset which is what I will do when I make the pots.

My first face, needs stronger lips:


I like this one better, but find it a little scarey.


Thanks for looking.  Check out a LOT of fabulous ideas at Whatever Goes Wednesday at Someday Crafts., Weekly Link Party 7 at Just Between Friends,  Under $100 Link Party at Beyond the Picket Fence! and the Share Your Creativity Party 109 at Its Overflowing .
