Puzzle pieces

I've spent the last few evenings piecing together tiles to make votives. You take square glass tiles and break them with a hammer, each piece breaking into 4 or 5 fragments. Each fragment shaped differently, jagged edges, splintered.

Then slowly, piece by piece, you glue each shard to the glass. Matching each to the curve of the votive. Laying shards edge to edge. A pattern emerges, a picture takes shape.

When all is pieced, when grout has dried, when the candle is lit, the light shines through.
