      Thanks. Sorry I can’t find a better pic of middle section & I don’t live there anymore.

    I hammered the pottery into the sizes I wanted (put the plate in a plastic bag & whacked away). I didn't have a set pattern, but an idea of wanted I wanted to do and what colors I wanted to use. I separated the colors out and did one color at a time - so I put tile adhesive on each piece as I went along. I did the red first and that set the pattern. I then used regular tile grout to fill in and scrubbed like mad to get all the residue off. With so many small pieces it took much longer than I expected - but it was well worth it.
