Made of locust, 50 x cc. 20 cm, smal pieces of wood remains found in my boyfriends workshop (he cut them for me to have small pieces), tile shards.
The difficult part of this project was the grouting, as the dark grout is immediately absorbed by the wood, especially the soft pieces such as petals and the lower pieces. I think I will have to seal them softly somehow, before grouting, in the next project, instead of polishing those pieces after the grouting wich takes away their shine and beauty. Some colour still remained on them, which is a pity.
Otherwise I liked doing this… I gave it to my mother for her birthday.

(Sorry for the bad photo quality.)
