oui, all mosaics

raymond isidore {creator of la maison picassiette} is quoted as saying, "one can do nothing without hard word, but the hard work can turn into beauty. one throws so many things away that could be used to give life and happiness. before coming to my building site, i often walked several kilometers to find my raw material: the broken plates, bottoms of perfume bottles, medicine bottles, things that people don't want and throw away into quarries and rubbish dumps but that are still useful. i took the things that other people threw away."
