We hate to throw things out. If something hits the floor in the hot shop, we gather ir up and put it in a kiln and make puddles out of it. The puddles are used to make mosaic projects for the house or garden. We make lots of garden balls, lamp shades, trays and tables. It's a lot of fun when we get a half a dozen people together for a play day. Occasionally, we do concrete patio stones and use stained glass or ceramic pieces to create the pattern. Good for children events.
