Making a table

I've wanted to have a couple of tile tables for my backyard for a long time.  Now that I can actually make my own tile, it's time to start this new project, as the other will be winding down sometime in November. 

I got these cool napkins for Tom's birthday party a couple of weeks ago, and I really liked the pattern. Ordered the table from http://www.bigceramicstore.com/ and it came in last week.  I need four six inchers and 8 - 2.5 X 6 inchers, and four 2.5 squares for the corners. 

I adapted the pattern from the napkin, changed some colors and sizes, simplified, and added my signature dots to these pieces.  It's hard to see the true colors because it hasn't been fired yet, but I'll show you when it comes out of the kiln.  I'm thinking I'm going to do some form of wavy lines for the side pieces, using all of the colors in the tile, then maybe a solid for the corners.  Can't wait to see how it looks when it gets fired.
