Brown and tan Mexican "one of a kind" mosaic flower pot with vintage pottery pieces from an old 1960s ceramic church attributed to folk artisan Heron Martinez Mendoza (Acatlan, Puebla).  One photo shows the pottery pieces that were once part of an amazing church sculpture.  Sadly, the entire church broke and collapsed into many pieces.  Heartbreaking!   The last photo shows a ceramic church very similar to the one we had.  Happy to be able to use the remnants in this pot and give them a "nueva vida" (new life).  
4 1/2" diam. x 3 7/8" tall
Pot has a drainage hole.
PROCESS:  Hand-cut pottery pieces and tiles were applied to a terra cotta pot.  The pot was grouted and then sealed with a professional grade sealant to resist water and stains.  Pot was wiped clean and tiles were buffed with a soft cloth.
RECOMMENDED USE:  To ensure many years of use, I recommend placing your plant in a plastic container before putting it into the flower pot. THIS POT, DUE TO THE LOW FIRED CERAMICS, SHOUD BE USED INDOORS ONLY.  Hand-cut tiles sometimes have sharp edges so please handle with care.
NOTE FROM TRINIE:    I collect Mexican folk art and Mexican pottery.  Through the years, thanks to one mishap or another, I have amassed a few broken pieces that I am now incorporating into my mosaics.  The old Mexican shards are getting a nueva vida (new life).  I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!
