Mosaicwares Revisited

This is a recycled post from last February, but I have added a few new photos.  Alison @ The Polo House has a new linky called Favorites on the First, and this month everyone is linking their favorite collections.  I basically only collect three things: MacKenzie-Childs, books, and picture frames made from salvaged materials.  But I do have a small collection of Mosaicwares I would like to share for this party since I post about books and MacKenzie-Childs often.


I adore Mosaicwares.  The company manufactures "la picassiette" one of a kind home furnishings. La picassiette is a French phrase meaning "stolen from the plate."  It is an art form where artists use broken bits of china, glass, figurines, and other materials and cement them onto objects to form different surfaces.

I have a little bit of this art form in my dining room.

This piece is called The Breakfast Nook.  I sometimes use it in the very center of a buffet for either appetizers or desserts.

This is a candlestick.

These frames are fun, especially the heart-shaped one.

This butler's tray is a versatile piece.

I currently have it set-up as a bar for my husband.  He only drinks wine, and I wish I could think of a use for the cut crystal decanters that were given to us as a wedding present.

I put all of his wine accessories, including his Laguiole wine opener, in a small berry bowl. Laguiole makes the best knives and wine openers in the world!

Have you ever made any La Picassiette crafts?

  5. love the pink tray table, sooo cute
    I have tried my hand at mosaic a couple of times.
    it is so messy and hand cutting the tiles takes a lot of strength in which my hands are not good at.
    I will just admire others works and not my own, lol
    Take care
