Mosaic has been used in the artistic world since the early
times. It has been particularly prevalent in the Mediterranean
region. From Byzantines to Greeks, through Copts, Romans and
Arabs, mosaïc has crossed the centuries without losing
its freshness and beauty.
Gustav Klimt (1862-1918) and Antonio Gaudi (1852-1926) were
the first modern artists to use mosaics widely. The works
of the latter in Barcelona (Güell Park - Sagrada Familia
- etc...) are fine examples of where he has used his technique
to great effect.
Thanks to a free approach to the use of mosaic, we get closer
in spirit to these great artists.
Our creations utilise monochromatic and polychromatic pieces
of ceramic tile and broken mirror as the basis for our designs,
which are generally of a marine or a floral variety. These
designs can cover areas both small and large.
We also make furniture (armchairs and tables) as well as objets
d'art (boxes, trays...)
