New craft: Pique assiette flower pot

This summer I took a class in pique assiette mosaic technique. This was a ways out of my comfort zone. Pique assiette means "broken plate" and you literally have to smash crockery to do it. We took a hammer to dinner plates to get the pieces, applied the pieces to a plain clay pot, smoothed the edges with a Dremel tool, and filled around the pieces with grout. I'm not sure I'll do much of this craft, but it's good to try a non-fiber craft once and a while.
