Welcome! I am a self-taught pique assiette ("broken from plate")
mosaic artist who has been creating whimsical and elegant pieces since 1998. This is a wonderful way to combine my love of color, vintage pottery, china and jewelry into one alchemical medium. Each one-of-a-kind piece reveals itself to me moment by moment. I'm not always sure where the piece will go when I begin, but the piece knows!

I especially love custom work and I welcome wholesale opportunities.

You can visit my rarely-updated-but-very-cool personal web site here, and my not-updated-since-forever portfolio over on EBSQ here. Both sites contain many of my past creations, sold and commissioned, that will inspire you to lofty and dizzying heights should you wish to commission your own piece. You can also go to my etsy store to BUY STUFF NOW! Please.

She Lives!

Good Lord. 15 months tomorrow since I posted on this thing? My worries about not remembering how to post here were for naught since everything has changed inside the control panels anyway! Here goes something:

After spending the first five months of this year finally creating the Z's Garden Room Potting Bench (photos on that to follow, "soon"), a new burst of creative energy rose up at long last. And while I continue to wonder "what's next?" in terms of some new venues and vehicles of creative expression, e-Serendipity graced me again with a new custom project for a wonderful California couple.

I shall do a 20" lazy susan using only blue and white shards, not too busy, and as simple and elegant as I can manage. Gulp! I'm not known for my subdued minimalism, but I'm gonna make this work!

As always, Annie the Mosaic Muse inserts herself into the process. (I believe the studio insertion space she requires might have "expanded" a bit over the last 15 months.)

The susan is bound for this 1887 beach house in Pacific Grove, CA! My favorite location on the planet, thus far. Synchromysticism rules!

It shall live on this beautiful table.
Very excited! 
I love custom projects.
