Hi, I'm Diane the person behind China Petals. I am passionate about using recycled china to create beautiful gifts, home decor and personal keepsakes. Everything is handmade by me in the UK and has an element of up-cycling making them socially responsible as well as beautiful. I love the idea of taking something old and turning it into something unexpected. I like to use old cups, saucers and plates, nipping them down into little pieces to create new and exciting artwork. I believe using bone china creates a more delicate mosaic, always pretty and you sometimes have to look closely to realise they are made from recycled china.
Making personal keepsakes and gifts is one of my most favourite things to do. Knowing what I am making has special meaning to someone else is an honour and I feel it a great privilege when asked to do so. If you are interested in commissioning your own mosaic please contact me and I will be happy to talk through the options.
Visit my online shop to browse items ready to buy and my gallery to view inspiring and wonderful mosaic crafted from china pieces and other recycled materials. I offer free Royal Mail 2nd Class postage on all my items to UK addresses. Please take a moment to read some of the lovely reviews I have received regarding my work and workshops.
As well as my ready to buy and made to order mosaics I also hold regular china mosaic workshops ideal for beginners. If you ever wanted to try your hand at a new pastime or just wanted to do something different with a group of friends a mosaic workshop is always good fun. Take part in one of my regular mosaic workshops or let me come to you the choice is yours. See my Workshops page for more information.
