March Madness

All right! It's March and in my town, it's time for madness: basketball madness! Hence, this new piece for my entryway. It was inspired by the orange pieces, discarded at our local Arts Center ceramic studio. Look closely and you will see they resemble the surface of basketballs.

I thought our home needed a basketball god, a nod to our worship of this sport it in my hometown. Basketball gets us through long, brown Kansas winters and then spring arrives, right along with the end of the season and tournament excitement.

The base for this is a plastic serving tray. I am new to mosaic so I will find out if this is a base that will last over time. It's light, which is nice. Adding the broken ceramic does add weight.
