Vintage Could Never Be So Lovely!

Oohh . . I was completely delighted by My European Touch today! This shop offers perfectly beautiful mosaic art & refurbished vintage pieces. It's filled with shabby & cottage chic creations that will add style and functionality to your home.

My European Touch is made up of one artist. She has been an artist for her entire life! She has worked in a variety of mediums, although, she has been enjoying mosaics for the past 8 years. Specializing in the "Pique Assiette/Tesserae" mosaic style, she transforms vintage plates into artistic designs that are always one of a kind. She is addicted to the mosaic arts & her love of it can be seen every piece that she makes.

This wall art is a gorgeous example of wall art that she created using vintage china plates & stained glass. It's a one of a kind piece!

My European Touch doesn't just feature mosaics. It also offers refurbished vintage pieces, such as this charming tea pot. It was unsalvageable, or at least you would think so. She sanded, primed & painted it before adding a minimal of embellishes. Isn't it amazing how something old & unusable can be transformed into something so beautiful? This piece would be perfect for a tea party or just displayed in your home.

Hi Corrinne, I was intrigued by Monika's style -
pique assiette - (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.
tesserae - small, usually square pieces of glass or other material used to make a mosaic. Their size generally ranges from a few millimetres to two centimetres long and five to ten millimetres thick. The term derives from the Greek word meaning "four-sided".
Very interesting.
