Mosaic-Framed Mirror: Dog Musicians
Arizona artist Nancy Low uses repurposed bits of china to form frames for unique home accents. The mosaic technique known as pique assiette began long ago in France as a way of recycling broken porcelain tableware. Each work of art may use as many as seven plates to incorporate a color scheme and distinct pattern into the design of the frame.
The dog figurines in this piece were made in Japan during the American occupation (1945–1952).
