Amazingly Versatile Glass-tile Mosaics

Happy 2014 and welcome back!  By now, I’ve pretty much stopped shamelessly trolling for Happy Birthday wishes and it’s time to get back to work.  (It was just this week so, if you missed it, it’s still not too late….)  In this installment, I’m going to rave about glass-tile mosaics.

I work with a company on the East Coast that makes amazing mosaics with multi-colored 3/8-inch glass tiles.  Starting with any artwork (e.g. photo, painting, graphics, etc.), their high-tech process cranks out decorative works of art.  The attached, rendered tear sheet shows a concept I am developing for a client.  If you look closely, you can see the tiny individual tiles in each mosaic.  Here, I am two possibilities with different framing options:  grinder finished stainless steel and solid cherry hardwood pegged at the corners.

Glass-tile mosaics are extremely versatile.  You can easily incorporate any theme into your interiors:  history, science, technology, nature, etc.  You are limited only by your imagination!  They make a durable, washable surface that’s rated for residential floors.  They’re can also be installed in wet environments (e.g. shower stalls) or even underwater!

Please contact me if I can provide any information regarding this amazing, versatile product.  Of course, you can always call me to talk about custom furniture too.

Wishing you a prosperous 2014!
