My first one! A dragonfly...  Made while on Barbados out of plain broken china (background), blue transferware (wings), beach glass in brown and green (body and grass) and a glow-in-the-dark stone (head).

This stone is called "Amber Dawn" and now resides in Crane Gardens, Barbados.  It has a fun centerpiece that I cut out of a white dinner plate.  Next comes copper button tiles and black marquise ceramic tiles.  I then added pieces cut from an exquiste 1950s East German plate in shades of gold and copper.  Next came a ring of brown beer bottle sea glass found on the island, a ring of glass tiles that have an oatmeal texture and a full ring of copper button tiles to finish off the last ring.

This one is called "Trish's Wish" and was made for a Canadian couple that have become good friends of mine. They have a beautiful garden on Barbados. The center has been cut from an East German plate.  The pattern is called "Strohblume". The next rings are made of blue glass tiles, then white glass nuggets, the trim of an old ceramic plate, blue glass tiles from Fatima's shower and my parents pool in Spain, blue glass nuggets and last are matt white hexagon tiles.

This stone is called "Shades of Grey I" and was made during a girlfriend weekend with my best friend, Tonja.  The transferware center focal tile is made out of a blue/grey Bristol pattern plate.  This stone now graces a garden in Lueneburg.

This stone is called „Spin the Bottle“.  The outside ring is actually the most interesting element.  It is made out of black marquise-shaped tiles that lend a bit of motion.  Next comes a row of copper button tiles, then a broad band of brown beer bottle sea glass found on the shores of Barbados.  The next band is made of vintage clear oval frosted Czech beads separated by honey-colored glass tiles.  The inside is a vintage ceramic coaster from the Greek island of Rhodos.

I also made this "Bristol Dragonfly" just for fun.  It is a large chunk of natural granite.  The components are transferware, ceramic tile and a  glass button tile for the head.

This stone was a house-warming gift. "Fatima's Peony" is now in a garden in Gatow, Berlin.  I cut each petal and leaf out of a different transferware plate.  To get the half moon shape I took a very large (42cm) round stepping stone mold and taped a piece of sturdy plastic to the inside before pouring the cement.

This stone is called "Tilly's Woodland." It includes dishes from my friend Renate's late mother's service (Woodland by Enoch Wedgwood). I gave it to her as a gift for her 50th birthday. It is for her garden in Nierstein and a memorial stone for a great mom - Tilly.
