Tile mosaic

The mosaics on this page have been made using glass or ceramic tiles by traditional laying methods.

The glass tile mosaics have been made using the direct method. Individual tesserae are cut to form the design and glued in place before the finished piece is grouted. This produces a piece of art which is durable enough to use as a table mat or top, and is non-fading and cleanable.

The laying pattern or ‘opus’ is carefully chosen to reflect or enhance the subject matter of the mosaic.

Unglazed ceramic tile mosaics are reversible and are sometimes laid by the indirect (face down) method which produces a very flat finished surface.

Unglazed ceramic is particularly durable to use outdoors and items such as house number plaques are mounted on exterior grade board, and use exterior quality fixatives and grout.
