Art from Shards

Published May 27, 2008 - (Updated Aug 30, 2013)

Featured in Vallarta Lifestyles Magazine, Winter/Spring 2008 issue.

Step past the mosaic gateposts of A Broken Art and enter a world of creativity. Glittering glass covers part of one worktable, and along the wall piles of colorful pottery pieces invite touching and arranging. Long worktables with tools and materials are set out on a patio under gently swaying shade trees, where Christy Ann Beguesse, owner of the gallery and workshop, capably instructs her enthusiastic students in transforming a variety of everyday objects into decorative pieces with mosaics.

Beginners can create a wall hanging or kitchen trivet from a wide variety of hand-painted Mexican tiles in just half a day, while participants with more time actually hand-paint glass, using a special technique developed by Christy, and transform the pieces into an eye-catching montage.

Everyone leaves with an instructional pamphlet to produce these crafts at home, as well as a photo journal of the workshop. For more information, go to www.abrokenart.com.
