La Maison Picassiette

La Maison Picassiette is not far from the center of Chartres, where Raymond Isidore worked as a graveyard sweeper. Isidore never considered himself an artist, but with 30 years and 15 tons of broken glass and crockery, he transformed his home and garden into a rich collection of mosaics which now attracts over 30000 visitors a year.

    O my lord, what a work of art. To think, the incredible beauty he created, one piece of pottery, a shard at a time, a million broken pieces of glass, tirelessly and lovingly put into place to become whole again. A piece at a time.
    Patience.
