Promo Blast!

Elephant Mosaic // Wall Art // Broken China Mosaic // Decor // Nursery // Housewarming // Hippie Art // Bohemian Decor // Multicolor Mosaic

Brightly colored flowered vintage dishes cover this cool elephant. Measuring 9-1/2 inches by 7 inches, it has 2 keyholes on the back making it ready to hang. Sides and back are painted black.

The vintage china used here is from a local pottery factory outside of my hometown. Stangl Pottery ( http:/// ) from Flemington, NJ. They were from my own family collection that over the years chipped and cracked beyond repair. Placed in cupboards away from view for years, when they were pulled out again, I knew they still had purpose. They still have much beauty, as you can see here. Still useful, but in another way. Re-purposing is my favorite part about making mosaics!

I am proud to take items destined for the trash and create a beautiful, useful piece of art like this one. It is a delight to share with you all the joy I have when I find broken objects and give them new purpose like the dishes I used here on this little elephant. The art pieces I make using discarded and/or broken items holds a special place in my heart.

And just for fun, here's a photo I have entitled Elephant Dust.
Elephant Dust
I was cleaning off grout just before taking photos of the freshly grouted mosaic and found this. I love it! It is available as a 10 x 8 inch art print or a 10 x 12 inch framed art print. Contact me for more info on frame colors and pricing.

Stay peaceful,
Cindy, Earth Mother Mosaics


  1. Beautiful creation! Visiting from UBC

  2. Beautiful.. Creating something beautiful from what we thought had no use! Wow!

    1. Thanks so much. We do what we can around here to see things in a creative way.

  3. Hi again Cindy. Love the elephant. Actually, I seem to be collecting elephants these days for no reason. Also love the elephant dust. Sometimes my best work comes out of the left-over paint on the palette. :)

    1. Hi Veronica! Sometimes something "speaks" to you enough to start a collection, I have found. There's usually a feeling or inspired thought that accompanies them. It's wonderful to feel that tug at something from inside, isn't it?!
