Blue Willow Broken China Mosaic Mailbox

This is a broken china mosaic mailbox. I started with a standard steel mailbox from my local home-center and broken china in shades of blue: blue willow, blue onion, blue danube, etc. I hand-cut each piece and arranged it like a puzzle on the entire surface of the mailbox. I use construction adhesive which dries with some "give" to accomodate many weather conditions. After this dries, I used charcoal grout to fully cover the piece. When this cured, I used a grout sealer which will repel moisture and cause weather to roll off the mosaic. I can re-create a similar look for your project, but pieces of china will vary in size, color and pattern. I will use blue willow and other blue transfer ware patterns as seen in the photos. This listing is for this look only. If you prefer a different color or pattern for your mailbox, please inquire.

This piece can be mounted on a standard pole or board mounting and the holes have been left clear to drill into the base.
