  • 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…

  • How to build your own candle at our studio

    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:

  • Components for Fused Glass Pendants

    So, you walk into PicassoZ, you say “I’d like to make a fused glass pendant”, then we show you how to layer & design from our case, and you help yourself.   Leave your creation with us for about a week to fire, depending on when we fire our little tiny kiln…and we can always mail you your piece if you come from out of town.   We fire, polish and attach the bail.   Our hand-dyed silk ribbons are $8 or you can

  • Mosaics go home the same day

    Our new mosaic studio, Breakables, was created because of the popularity of mosaics at our studios over the last 13 years.   They are very beginner friendly because you just arrange & glue!   Grouting at home after 24 hours is recommended, but optional.   The surface prices are all-inclusive and your grout kit & instructions are included.  The Breakables studio has its own hours: Wednesday-Friday 10am-6pm Saturday  10am-10pm Sunday Noon-6pm

  • Make a mosaic on Valentine’s Day

    Our pink, red & white themed display is full of heart shapes your sweetie will love through the years. You can also take a plain surface and just draw a heart on it, then fill in the heart with glass of choice…or any drawing on any surface, for that matter. Mosaics are easy! 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.
