When it comes from the heart, it almost always works.
 When it comes from the head, it seldom does. - Marc Chagall

Although our studio is named "Moe's Ache" (say it quickly), there is no actual person named Moe involved with the mosaic sculpture and installations created here.

We felt it necessary to christen the studio with a name that evokes the same humor that encompasses our work.

We often start by reclaiming everyday objects, many destined for the landfill, reinventing them using both traditional and innovative mosaic techniques.


sumptin fishy The idea of recycling objects into art is not necessarily a unique concept, however the idea that more and more people on our planet are embracing its creation is uniquely positive. Art created using recycled and re-used materials goes beyond just feeding the soul and enriching the mind. It also becomes a vehicle for positive social change.

As the focus on our planet becomes more centered in renewable resources, I am challenged to re-use and re-invent materials in an attempt to show others what can be done with society's orphans. Mosaic lends itself naturally to this challenge. Broken pottery shards transform an outer surface; discarded plastic bags form a lightweight, environmentally friendly core. Using these materials in innovative ways, together with a touch of humor, I want to create public and commercial artwork that evokes a smile while reminding us of our role as resourceful stewards of our planet.

If our trash is to come back and haunt us, it should be in a form we can enjoy!
