Mosaic Potholes

Posted June 13th, 2014 @ 1:20pm

CHICAGO (AP) - The perfect pothole might not exist for many people. But for mosaic artist Jim Bachor, it's one with a nice oval shape.

That's because Bachor uses them to create art. He began filling potholes with mosaics a little more than a year ago, after one in front of his house became a hassle. The Chicago resident's work also hangs in galleries.

He was first drawn to the ancient art form because of its ability to last.

With orange cones and vests displaying his last name, Bachor and his helpers look official enough to shut down a street section to work on filling a pothole.
