The Ancient Art of Glass Mosaics Continues to Grace Buildings Today
For over 4,000 years, mosaic art has graced buildings throughout the world. From the pictorial murals and intricate geometric designs of the Greeks and Romans using colored tesserae, to the shimmering gothic and Byzantine domes of coloredglass tiles in the middle ages,to the geometric beauty of Islamic art in mosques throughout the middle east, to the swirling Art Nouveaumurals by Antoni Gaudi in Barcelona,glass mosaic tileshave been a part of timeless masterpieces of color and light throughout history.
Artiststoday are using that quality of light to create artwork for homes, businesses, churches, and public buildings. Glass mosaic tiles can be used to create a beautiful backsplash in the kitchen, an exquisite sign for a business,
an undersea kingdom in a swimming pool, or a shimmering tropical jungle in the bathroom. The sparkling play oflight onthe tiles makes an ideal surface for altars in churches or for seating areasin businesses. The murals can be pictorial, or they can be used in neutral tones, to make the play of light the work of art. The ranges of shades and colors can give a feeling ofwarmth or coolness. The only limitation is your imagination.
Glass mosaic tiles are beautiful onsurfaces because they areluminescent–theyreflect light. The effect of candlelight, for example, is extraordinary on glass mosaics. Glass tiles are strong, so they will last lifetimes, and non-porous, so they areresistant to mold and mildew.You never have to worry about stains–glass tiles just need to be wiped down with a damp cloth.
