“Pique Assiette is a form of art similar to mosaic but specifically uses broken plates and the like arranged in patterns or designs. The name comes from the French pique-assiette, meaning ‘one who eats from others’ plates’ or ‘stolen dish.’ Pique assiette is a style of mosaic that incorporates pieces of broken ceramics, plates, dishes, cups, tiles and other found objects into the design. The appeal and expressiveness of pique assiette for me lies in the search for the dishes, the action of breaking the dishes and redesigning them along with humor, recycling, and the significance of the found objects.”
