Franciszek and Lucyna Wesolowksi, Mosaic decorated house

The pictures in this post show a house in the Polish city of Wroclaw, with a facade that completely was decorated with mosaic from pieces of glass, plate, old bottles, but also dolls and other items.

As far as I understand the decorations on this house, located in a suburb of Wroclaw, were made by Franciszek en Lucyna Wesalowski. Since the pictures in this post were made in July 1970, it probably concerns a house built after World War II and decorating it may have occurred in the 1960s.

The internet has no information about this.

Some years ago the house got new owners who removed all decorations. This art environment is not extant anymore..

  1. Looks like fun to visit... It sure must take a very inspired mind to go to such decorative lengths.

    So when are you going to start decorating your house Henk ?

    Have a fine weekend...

  2. Hi Owen, Wroclaw seems to be a booming city, so it would be fun to visit it, meanwhile trying to find the spot of this decorated house. I do hope someone from Wroclaw reads the post and sends me some more info.
    My own house will never be a topic in my own blog I am afraid, my decorative talents are minimal.
    I jusr have rewritten my post on the "Jardin de nous deux"(Charles Billy), remember?
    Have a good weekend, all the best, Henk
