Etsy is a wonderful place to find affordable mosaic pieces. The mosaic artists who use that site create wonderful pieces of art. Yes, frames are popular items because they are items that are easier to post but should they be considered “art” or “housewares”. I know that I would personally search the art category well before I looked at housewares. While some mosaics fit both categories, it is inherently unfair to put all mosaics in the housewares category.
Now Terry Nicholls’ piece is not on Etsy but conceivably could end up in the dreaded Housewares category. Especially since it is a frying pan. I’ll call it art though.
