Jim Bachor is a mosaic artist in Chicago. He works against the city's pothole problem by filling in and tiling over potholes, giving them a beautiful appearance that helps protect cars. Ugly voids in city pavement become lovely images in glass and marble. Lately, he's been filling them in images of ice cream treats. You can see more in the series at Junkculture.
You can also see other mosaic works at his gallery. Bachor has a novel and fresh approach to this ancient art. He chooses unusual subjects for the medium, including children's breakfast cereals and Twinkies.
