Birds of Paradise

I made this mosaic hotplate at a community craft group about 4 years ago. It cost me $10 to attend and the materials were supplied. When my sister saw it she said ‘what is it?’ LOL! Why, it’s meant to be a bird of paradise, of course!

I’d like to try mosaic again one day and plan to keep shards of broken ceramic to use for it. I don’t see the point in buying over priced new materials to make things with designs that were origanlly intended to recycle scrap.  So if any of my nice coloured ceramic breaks, or should I say ‘when’ as glassware afterall is a consumable if you use it, I will try and put it aside.

Throughout the summer many clumps about our garden sprout spectacular birds of paradise. I took some photos of them to enjoy, some with our resident birds who hang around! Whenever these are flowering, we try and put some fertiliser on them regularly, liquid fertiliser should be applied every fornight while flowering. It encourages them to flower more!

I hope you enjoy my images of birds of paradise!
