WRITTEN WITH BROKEN TILES – TRENCADIS II by Teresita Leal

Updated: Feb 23


Trencadis is a type of mosaic made by reusing irregular ceramic fragments. The result seems to be alive, in motion, in constant transformation.

Despite the passage of time, the loss of pieces and fractions of colour, what remains of these works of art preserves this spirit, showing us how to build from broken pieces and make new use of the elements, both in art and life.


I was very interested in this technique because it is a spontaneous, unpredictable, abstract, and creative process, just like the raw edge appliqué from scraps I used for this series.


I started by hand dyeing and painting the background fabric with white acrylic



then I fused the fabric tiles (mostly hand-dyed and some commercial)



and finally quilted
