Mike has always been fascinated by mosaics and stippled art.  He came across Artaic - Innovative Mosaic's blog and saw this mosaic that hangs in the Anglican Church of St Peter and is made entirely of burnt toast.

Maurice Bennett, 33 year old British artist, Adam Sheldon created a six foot mosaic of Christ on the cross made of 153 pieces of burnt toast. Adam used his toaster to burn all 153 pieces of bread. He then scraped out the parts he wanted to be lighter with a knife and used a blow torch to make the darker pieces.
