Garden wall mosaic with broken vintage china

yes I know, its been years since I posted anything. But here is what I am busy with, but am only halfway. 
Smashed vintage china used to mosaic a garden wall. Never throw broken beauties away, you can use them after a lifetime collecting broken china..
First chip the paint off the wall, paint with a slushy cement with bonding liquid
Start sticking your pieces up
Grout with waterproof grout
Grind off any sharp bits

A decorated circle mosaic

I had fun decorating some bisqued circles- about 10cm in diameter. beautifully glazed at the Knysna Pottery House and then I went a bit off tangent and did an intricate background glass mosaic which took ages to do.  Base is made with fibre cement board, waterproofed. It can withstand being outdoors in warmer climates. (Not sure about icy places)

So the next one will be an easier design and as a result, more affordable. I obviously needed some therapy!
