This summer I took a class at A Bashful Rainbow in which we made mosaic table tops. Diane, the owner, took a picture of mine when I finished it:
When I started it, I was afraid the rose would look more like a tulip, but from a distance I think the shading works. I have enough glass that I can make a lampshade or two and maybe some coasters to match.
I still need to attach the legs and put it in the living room.
