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”. 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 lies in the ideas of lateral thinking, humour, recycling, and the significance of the found objects.
Jenifer will supply materials for this workshop but strongly encourages students to bring dishes, or pieces of glass that they would like to use in their work.
