I was thrilled when I saw who this weeks featured artist is, MyEuropeanTouch. I've gotten to know Monika a bit through our contact on Handmade Artists Forum. Monika, is a very sweet supportive person, and a fantastic mosaic artist, with a great sense of humor. I'm not especially a fan of pink, but I love her work, which is mostly done with pink! And, I want almost all of it! Monika takes some beat up items such as tables, cake domes, teapots, etc and transforms them into beautiful pieces of art. With glass nippers, and wheeled cutters she cuts up beautiful china, that becomes the medium for her gorgeous creations. She also uses stained glass, vintage jewelry and hand made clay roses among other findings.
Mosaic Cake Dome, which was a custom order. You can custom order one too!
This would make serving cake any day special.
Wall Hanging Mosaic Washboard - Quite a transformation!
What do you do with an old teapot that has lost it's silver plate? Send it to Monika of course for a one of a kind make over!
Vintage Teapot Center Piece, this teapot was originally made in 1905! Beautiful shabby chic.
You can also find Monika at her blog, My European Touch, and at MyEuropeanTouch on HandmadeArtists, and of course her studio My European Touch on ArtFire.
Monika is currently the Featured Dealer at the Avonlea Antique Mall. This article gives us a glimpse at Monika's childhood in war torn Germany and part of what led to her beautiful Mosaic creations. She loves doing custom orders. She also loves going to the beach near her home in Florida.
Thank you for letting me share a little about my friend Monika, and have a beautifully unique day!
