|Teal Picassiette Mosaic birds|
I wanted to share this pair of mosaic birds I created using vintage china from various resale venues. Mosaics created from broken china is called picassiette (also pique assiette), and it's my favorite kind of mosaic. It's a great way to use chipped, damaged or broken china.

The birds are actually quite small, about 3 inches high by 5 inches tip of the beak to tip of the tail.
|Mosaic birds on Display|
At the moment I display them on a window ledge near a small reproduction Tiffany Window that came from the Metropolitan Museum of Art, where the real much larger window hangs. The large Tiffany window (the real one) is currently my favorite stained glass window in the world, in case anyone has a spare one...
(btw, notice the authentic shabby chic (?) of the window and window handle...)
