About us

It wasn’t long after I started taking a mosaic class at The Chicago Mosaic School that it became clear to me... finding many, if not all of the basic tools and supplies needed for making mosaics in one place was near to impossible, despite living in metropolitan Chicago! Of course, it was possible to shop online for most all of these items but… when you are inspired… when you HAVE to get started NOW… waiting is NOT an option! Plus, have you ever tried buying something based on its color or texture from a computer? At best it’s a crapshoot!

I am pretty sure that I am no different than you... you need, want and like immediate gratification. You have to see, touch, feel and compare everything; its features, the colors and texture. You have questions. You want answers. You need information and clarification. Because of this, I created TINY PIECES, Chicago’s only retail source for Mosaic Tools & Supplies... all in one place!

After 12 fulfilling years of serving the mosaic community at The Chicago Mosaic School I have made the difficult decision to close the brick and mortar retail store at 1127 W Granville in order to pursue my own creative life. I will continue to be active at the school and look forward to seeing you there if and when you visit.

I appreciate your business and am eager to help you with your mosaic art pursuits. This is what Tiny Pieces - Mosaic Tools & Supplies is all about… helping you!

I look forward to it.
