dac mosaic

(sung to 'i don't know why she swallowed a fly')

I knew a young potter who designed a mosaic



he rolled the clay
to make the slab
to mark the area



to cut the tiles



to dry and fire the pieces



to under glaze them



to glaze the bits
to final fire them
to reassemble them



to apply gold luster (12% gold)
to glue them down
to grout the paver
to clean it up

i don't know why he didn't cut them all out...


.... perhaps he'll die.
