My first Pique Assiette project. A mirror featuring a poodle head, roses and broken china and pottery. The poode figurine was broken. The flower in the corner is made from the tail and pieces of the body.
Floral  mirror that started with a magnolia platter that belonged to my Great-grand mother. It was chipped and cracked but I didnt want to get rid of it. Now it has new life.
My favorite mirror that has a little bit of everything including a broken Toby mug.

My fascination with broken china mosaics continue. I really like the technique of Pique Assiette. Thr results are more rustic than typical mosaic and allows for uneven surfaces and hidden treasures. I got the mirrors in a package of 3 so I couldn't stop at just one. These were my practive pieces. I have also done a couple of birdhouses, picture frames and a wooden tray. Will post when I figure out how to make the pictures fit. I love looking for broken and discarded china and figurines.  Now on to side tables!
