Ancient Mosaic Studios acquires Piage & Pieta Art Stone
May 29, 2007,
Ancient Mosaic Studios has acquired Piage & Pieta Art Stone of Atlanta. Piage & Pieta Art Stone has been in business more than twenty years and is known for its line of table bases, urns, vases, pedestals and planters made from its proprietary cast stone.
The acquisition includes the designs, molds and unique manufacturing techniques and finishes. Ancient Mosaic Studios will continue to market and promote the designs as Piage & Pieta Art Stone.
According to Tim Capron, who with partner Paul Knutson acquired Ancient Mosaic Studios three years ago, “We see great synergies between the AMS and Piage lines. Some of our dealers have matched Piage & Pieta bases with our tops for years and we’re excited to bring the two lines together in a more formal way.”
Knutson added: “Both Ancient Mosaic and Piage are high-end lines and our customers see this as a natural extension for us. They are very comfortable with the fiberglass-reinforced pedestal and urn bases that we have imported for years and now will also be able to match our tops with even more refined, real cast stone pieces made in the USA.”
All of the molds and manufacturing equipment have been relocated to Ancient Mosaic Studios’ facility in Ft. Pierce, Fla., where the company produces its high-end line of marble and travertine outdoor tabletops. Key operational and manufacturing staff from the Georgia plant has relocated to South Florida to ensure a smooth transition.
