     I work and teach Mosaics...and yet never thought of it, in terms of brokenness and the acceptance of that
    What interested me more, was the grouting...or the material we use to fill the spaces inbetween the tiles...It brings about the cohesiveness in the piece. Without the grout...the broken tiles wont make sense....and the colour of the grout matters a lot. The wrong colour can kill the piece...
    See what I am getting at ?
    Like in life...totally depends on what we surround ourselves with... Happiness , joy, positivity, compassion OR negativity, anger sadness.
    We can make or break what we surround (the grout) or immerse ourselves with.
    About the tiles....I feel the broken ones, and the different ones add to the character of the final piece...Just like us ! The brokenness and experiences make us what we are.... interesting  individuals.

    Thanks for this... I will never look at a mosaic piece the same way again.
