Like many artists, you have probably used vitreous glass mosaic tile, but have always wanted to try other types of mosaic glass. Now you can, at a price you can afford. For a more sophisticated look, try our swirled glass mosaic tiles or our metallic glass mosaic tiles. The metallics have glittering copper dust marbled throughout, and the effect is stunning. Equally impressive are our iridescent glass mosaic tiles. These Italian tiles are some of the finest murano glass made, and the pictures speak for themselves.
SMALTI - BYZANTINE GLASS MOSAIC TILE
Byzantine glass mosaic tile or smalti is the type of opaque glass tile used in Byzantine mosaics in the interiors of European churches. Smalti isn't molded into uniform shapes like modern glass mosaic tiles, but it cuts just as easily. Smalti is mixed according to traditional recipes and cut by hand for natural variations in size, shape, color and thickness. Many of the mosaics at the gallery were made with our smalti. Try smalti if you are looking for that little something extra. Perfect for mosaics with a medieval or renaissance look.
Millefiori has been made by glass craftsmen in Murano, Italy since the 15th century. Our millefiori assortment looks like mixed candy and includes many different patterns and colors. Use millefiori as accents in mosaic sculptures and vases or as tiles in pictorial mosaics. Millefiori always catches the eye.
