Advent Gift Day 23

The pattern for the 'Mosaic Star' motif was the Advent Gift for Day 23. This post has now been removed.

This design was inspired by the really fine and meticulous tile mosaics created by Persian artisans to decorate important buildings such as mosques and palaces. Some of the designs I used as my inspiration were so intricate and had such fine detail that I could never hope to recreate them, but hopefully this piece evokes at least a little bit of the spellbinding nature of the traditional mosaic designs.
