Solange and Alexandre Piffer have been working with mosaics since 1999, but it was in 2008 that Solange almost unintentionally discovered the material that would change the history of his work that is known in various parts of the world.
After a few dishes had fallen to the floor, Solange Piffer picked up the shards of those treasured pieces and did not hesitate to reserve them for her first picassiette mosaic project. Since then with the help of her husband Alexandre has been developing techniques for using dishes in his figurative mosaics.
With a focus on recycling these materials, they explore their colors and shapes, turning what would be garbage into mosaics with a unique expression. They declare that when they see embedded in the mosaic those fragments of crockery that have often been part of family utensils, seem to eternalize stories, memories and joys.
