have just seen a program on television concerning mosaic art done
on furniture. The art form originated in France and is named after
Picasso. Can anyone tell me where I can find more information on
this form of mosaic art?
mosaic technique I think you are referring to is called Pique Assiette.
It is indeed French but named after Raymond Eduard Isidore, born
in 1900. "Because he used discarded pieces of glass and broken
dishes, his neighbors mocked him with the name Picassiette, which
loosely translates as "Plate stealer". A wonderful book
explaining how to do this is, Bits and Pieces MOSAICS by Marlene
Hurley Marshall. The above in quotes are from her book.
