These pique assiette vases are done with carefully nipped plates, recycling and combining them to show how what otherwise might be a tabletop setting becomes a work of art to be enjoyed even in the absence of food. It inspires us to think differently about dinnerware.

The tiny pieces of plates are used like paint. Grout color is an important element of the work.
