Beautiful mosiac Jocelyn. Did you make this? I have only done mosiacs in the house, but keep telling myself I will do one in the flagstone path one of these days. Kathy

Kathy, I photographed this at the Chinese gardens in Portland, Oregon, several years ago. There were a number of different patterns used as pathways and patios all throughout the gardens. The same types of stones were used in all of them, so they were a beautiful unifying feature for the gardens.

fantastic inspiring image.

I'm working on a new mosaic carpet design for my own garden and I feel pebble mosaics is going to be the medium.

thanks for the inspiration.

My pleasure, Michelle!
To inform and inspire is my goal here...

Jocelyn, I recognized that pathway pattern! I was one of the few Americans involved in the construction of the Portland Chinese Garden. Our company did the irrigation, dirt placement and acquisition and planting of the plants. If you visit my site, there are a few posts dedicated to the Chinese Garden in the "categories" section. Watching those guys lay those stones was wild. You know, one complete walk had to be redone? LOL, bureaucracy! The stones were set at 1/4" and the "handicapped access" rules stated they needed to be at 1/8 inch. True story, lol. They redid the walks.

Steve, thanks for the insights on the construction of these mosaics. I enjoyed visiting your site and tours of the Chinese Garden. Nice blog!
