Birds for Mosaics


Welcome to the wonderful, colorful, intriguing world of Pique Assiette Mosaic. My pieces are made mostly from very old damaged china collected from area antique shops, junk stores, our local Salvation Army Store, E-bay, ag sales, estate auctions, and from the basements and attics of friends and clients.

I'm particular about the shards I use; very old shards more beautiful in color, crazing and texture. Decoupaged old photos, post cards, and other images add even more interest to a piece. Vintage rhinestone jewelry, silverware, Capodimonte flowers, birds, bottles, and anything else imaginable round out creations that can be tailored to create a deeply personal creation for a loved one. Grout is custom-colored to highlight the shards.

Hi Melissa,

I received the frame yesterday.  Before ordering it, I had read messages from other customers of yours saying that the items they purchased were even more fabulous in person than on the web, and I felt the same way when I saw my frame.  I love it!  Thanks,

Melissa, the vase is FANTASTIC!!!  Even more unique, colorful, fun, meaningful and well-made than I had imagined.  I absolutely can not wait to present it to them.  Will let you know their reaction! 






My work has been featured in CountryHome Magazine, Nature's Garden Magazine, and other midwestern publications.
