Artcycled Mosaics offers handmade, one of a kind
upcycled mosaic jewelry, garden art and home accessories. My garden art ranges
from bird baths, mosic fish, tables and outdoor friendly mirrors. My unique
broken china jewelry includes pendants, necklaces, earrings, rings, bracelets and belt
buckles all hand cut from upcycled and recycled china plates.
I love to transform cracked or broken plates,
china dishes and serving pieces into unique and new works, giving those old treasured
items a new lease on life with my broken china mosaics. My unique handcrafted
mosaic garden art is designed to enliven any garden setting. Distinctive birdbaths,
birdhouses, tables, jewelry, gifts and garden art are created, in the picassiette
style, with recycled tesserae (tile, pottery, broken china, glass and found objects) when
ever possible. I generally work in a traditional mortar and grout process because I
feel that this process holds up the best for exterior pieces. I also do my own
welding and copper work and design many of the stands used to display my work.
My handcrafted garden art and jewelry pieces
make great gifts for weddings, anniversaries, birthdays, housewarmings or any occasion for
the garden enthusiast! I hope you enjoy your visit, if you see something you are
interested in please contact me for price and availability. Custom orders are welcomed and
can be designed to suit a particular theme, color combination or special occasion.
Turn around time depends upon the season and my current schedule.
- What does Artcycled mean?
- Artcycled is a name I came up with, and is now
widely used, to express my desire to utilize recycled, repurposed or reused
materials when ever possible. It also reflects the fractured nature of
Picassiette pottery or broken china mosaic which is the primary style of my mosaic garden
art. Recycling or upcycling items into new uses is a great eco friendly alternative!
