We found a home for sale in Bisbee with a mosaic patio made of all sorts of broken pottery. It was amazing. It was like a treasure hunt. You could look at it for hours an not see all of the bits. If I lived there and wanted to keep kids busy for hours, I’d say something like, “Go outside and look for the last supper piece on the wall. Don’t come back in until you find it.”
A closeup of some of the mosaic pieces. I could have spend hours looking through them.
This mosaic was found in artist Rose Johnson of Bisbee’s bathroom. We were told that she spends a lot of time in there. We saw her home on the home tour. I want one like that.
Mosaic Art Source mosaic definition:
pique assiette – or picassiette ( a french term -“stolen from plate”) – pieces of broken pottery, china, glass, buttons, figurines, and/ jewelry are cemented onto a base to create a new surface. Almost any form can be used as a base, and any combination of pieces can be applied, restricted only by the individual creator’s imagination. m.a.s. mosaic glossary
