Custom Mosaic Prayer Boxes




These handcrafted mosaic prayer boxes are created with "pre-loved" ingredients -- shards of vintage and retro china, pottery, tiles, glass, crockery, and found objects. This style of mosaic is called "pique assiette," an art form with charm and appeal due to repurposing discarded items and creating beauty from "throw-aways."

Mosaic prayer boxes can be created in a variety of sizes and color palettes based on your preference. A vintage wood box serves as the base, and the exterior is covered in mosaic designs created from pieces of vintage china, pottery, glass, and ceramic tiles. Mosaic is grouted with sanded grout, and tinted to a compatible shade to complement the design. Grout is sealed after curing. The same techniques can be used if a new wooden box is preferred.

These custom mosaic prayer boxes are examples of items that can be created from the materials that you may have salvaged from your home -- broken china, glassware, tile, jewelry, beads, buttons, ceramics. Learn more about our custom mosaics here.
