The Platebreaker's Art
Platebreaking is a special realm of modern mosaics that requires
unusual persistence and adaptability on the part of the artist.
Material quantities are not easily guaranteed, and a variety of
patterns, colors and qualities of ceramic are typically employed.
This factor often dictates design, and creates spontaneity.
Improvisation is essential, and this exciting element inspires the
artist and charms the connoisseur.
All tesserae in this
mosaic were hand-cut from vintage and modern tableware.
