Les Negresses Oranges
3 drawer dresser with matching mirror.
Dresser dimensions: 40″L x 18″W x 32″H Matching Mirror: 32″W x 22″H
Materials: Black, orange, and white antique dishes with raffia trimmings.
The story behind this piece: The vase figurines of an African female and male with head ornaments from the 50s found in a flea market in Pennsylvania were the primary sources of inspiration for this piece. The rare Italian black and orange dishes were the perfect match for those vases. I made the vases removable to be able to use them as real vases for fresh flowers. The sides of the pieces have the shadow of the vases sketched out with mosaic pieces.
To alleviate the amount of mosaic, I added some raffia between the drawers.
This piece is an award winning and part of a solo exhibit at NYU gallery.

Le Coq Des Prairies
1 drawer and 2 door kitchen cabinet.

mixed media like raffia.
Dimensions: 30″L x 19″W x 35″ H
The story behind this piece: Rooster dishes are very common in France yet very diversified. This piece is in honor of the French countryside culture where I grew up. The raffia acts as hay.

Le Reve Des Esquimos
The Catch of the Day
4 drawer dresser.
Materials: mix of white, orange, and purple dishes and tiles with white faux fur.
Dimensions: 28″L x15″W x 42″H
The story behind this piece: The little igloo figurines were the initial inspiration for this particular piece. The addition of the fake fur coming out of the white tiles was used to keep up with the theme of the igloo. The innovation on this piece are the purple cups that were sunk in the drawers.

Antique coffee table with skirt.
Materials: Blue, green and silver antique dishes with 3D ceramic fish figurines and sea grass embedded in the mosaic, legs, and skirt of the table.
Dimensions: 47″L x 23″W x 16″ H
The story behind this piece: The fish shaped clear glass plates and the two ceramic fish were the inspiration for this piece. I silvered leafed the clear plates with 14 carat silver leaves and then recessed into the table as well as used the middle of the table the two magnificent 3D ceramic fish as removable center pieces and got inspired to draw a big fish shape around it.

Shades of Grey
Custom designed console.
Materials: Mix of antique dishes, stained glass, and stainless steel.
Dimensions: 42″ L x 16″W x 30″H
The story behind this piece: The shape of the table is a very modern and sleek design with an Asian look and is a perfect match for this set of dishes with black and blue flowers found at a second hand store in Canada. To make it as contemporary as possible, I mixed few materials with the plates like the mouth-blown stained glass cut in a Bamboo design style and stainless steel rods inserted in the mosaic itself. It gives the console a modern and unique look.
Round kitchen table top (no base).
Materials: Mix of yellow and green Mikasa dishes.
Dimensions: 42″ diameter
The story behind this piece: The beautiful Mikasa yellow flower dishes were the inspiration for this round dance around the table in which the “colibri” get lost. I am a huge fan of the Mikasa dishes from the seventies and every time I find some in a flea market I have to make something with them right the way. They have that effect on me!
