  • Mosaics & CaNdLes

    Looking for something creative to do you can take home with you?   Our walk-in mosaic studio, Breakables, is adjacent to Tea Largo, with cafe style seating so you can “break away”, relax, and create. When we moved to our Cleveland Heights studio in December, one of the most exciting things we did was expand our mosaic studio!    For almost a decade, our mosaics were in “bits and pieces” on a wall in a corner of our studio.   It was surprising how popular they were for how little space they had.  Being a self-taught mosaic artist, the mosaic side of our building is my favorite!   It’s got…

    In our Breakables Mosaic Studio, we offer FunKy ChuNkY Candle making.   It’s been pretty popular for a few reasons, like they are kid-friendly, go home same day, and customizable (you select the colors, pattern and the scent).    So, make sure you know the hours for Breakables Studio, as it differs from PicassoZ: Ok, now…how to build your own candle:

They are great for beginners or those of you who say “oh I’m not creative” and they go home with you. Seating in our Breakables Mosaic Studio.
