Hi Frances,
I love your mosaic, What did you use to attach it to the (off topic) oven, mastic ? thin-set is it made for outdoor use ?

Thanks
Mark

Frances,
i like the loose brick inside...you can add a brick in height if necessary to give more distance from the heat...dinner looks great!
also,love the shirt!

Bob

Thanks guys!

Sorry, I missed this question...
The mosaics are attached with the same cement-based mortar you'd use for bathroom or swimmingpool tiles. I applied it rather thickly for this mosaic and left out the grout layer.

There are several threads about mosaics on the forum, a quick search should pick them up.

Unfortunately, what with one thing and another (new job, new loom, same old household), the mosaic on the grill stopped after one lonely little twirl. But I'll certainly get back to it sometime - Spring maybe? And then there are the floor tiles I've been meaning to put down round the oven and the grill....
