Instead of wasting broken tile pieces, using them in useful and beautiful applications is such a better idea. Not only does this approach save materials from landfills and generate value, but this attitude of re-using stuff in unintended ways also fosters creativity. It's resourcefulness at its best!
FirenFusion on flickr created this back-splash (above) from broken tiles and she says "I have received so many wonderful compliments. Including, one from a friend that spent over $800 for a project I did for under $100." Did I mention this approach saves you lots of money?
Ari Kokomosaico on flickr makes the world a more colorful place with various projects ranging from small mosaics to large-scale works in public/commercial buildings, all with broken tiles.
