How to make a Mosaic Garden Sphere with Laurel True

This episode showed a little while ago and it is supposed to be airing again August 1st on the DIY network at 12pm EST, in the US.

Laurel True shows step-by-step how to take a rubber ball and turn it into a fantastic mosaic sphere! This is a picture of the finished product from the DIY Network’s website. You can print all the steps to do it yourself!

Step-by-step Mosaic Sphere Project by Laurel True

Even though I started out with mosaic just breaking up tile, it never really got me all that excited until I saw Laurel’s work. She uses colour! It’s not often that you see really colourful tiles because most people use… well frankly ugly tiles for home decor!!! Alot of the colourful tiles here in Canberra are usually the soft, low-fire tile, which you can’t use here as we get frosts. Laurel True uses tile from McIntyre Tile Company. They are a high-fire tile and come in beautiful colours…

Anyway, I love this project. There are too many DIY projects that are just so dull and plain ugly and it makes me wonder why bother!? But not this one. This takes an el cheapo kids’ rubber ball and turns it into a piece of art.

  12. Hi Cece,
    Your tiles sound lovely! I don’t really sell tiles online – atleast not yet, maybe some day when I decide to get more serious… In any case if you want to send me some pictures with a little blurb about yourself and your tiles, I’ll consider writing a post about them. I will email you personally.
    Best,
    Kim

    Hello, my name is CeCe Bode. I make mosaic tiles using raw clay. I fire my tiles in a kiln at 2100 degrees, making them fade proof as well as weather proof and scratch proof. The vibrant colors and textuters makes each piece a work of art in itself. I wholesale my tiles and would love to send samples and photos of my work in hopes that you may be interested in selling them on your website.
    Thank you,
    CeCe Bode
