Pique Assiette Mosaic Art
Unique Gifts for Any Occasion
Pique assiette, the French approach to mosaic, is said to translate to swiping food off someone else’s plate. Perhaps because I’m a writer, I often use plates with images and words to create truly original pieces that have a theme — the London Metro, Japan, Woodstock, Paris, New York, Andy Warhol, food and wine.
The process is exacting. I treat the tiny shards as if they are paint, and accent the work with elements that excite and surprise. My designs are abstract and dynamic. No two views are alike. Color is significant; which includes the selection of grout.
To personalize a custom-ordered mosaic, I can include photos and pieces of text (perhaps snipped from an invitation for newlyweds).
Browse to see bold and contemporary vases, planters, lamps, kitchen utensil holders and tables, designed primarily with carefully chosen plates that are meticulously nipped and combined. Images and words often create a theme or tell a story. The Breaking News Series comments satirically on America’s current political, economic and social issues. Fans of Stephen Colbert, Lily Tomlin, Mel Brooks, Carl & Rob Reiner will enjoy biographical mosaics in the Celebrity Collection.
