Mosaic (French: mosaique, Italian: mosaico, Latin: musinum - "dedicated to the muses") is an image or ornament composed of small pieces of the same material or of different materials, which may be stones, glass, wood, shells, metal .
As a method of decoration, it is known since the third century BC: murals, made of stone of different colors, adorned palaces and houses of the rich citizens of Ancient Egypt.
Acclaimed also the Italian and Byzantine mosaics of semi-precious stones and glass that they put in almost all important buildings are also very famous. The work was very thorough and expensive, but it was worth it, because many of these authentic works of art have survived their creators and now we can contemplate some of them in museums. The mythical scenes or illustrations of historical events still surprise our imagination with its wealth of colors and details.
This material serves very well to express your wishes and fantasies in decoration and design. A mosaicist can create an immense amount of decorative, abstract or ornamental solutions to accentuate spaces, divide them or, on the contrary, bring together different spaces. High quality material and wide range of colors gives you the possibility to make any mural, painting, border or decorate furniture, giving a very special touch to the environment.
Among the undisputed merits of the mosaic is the possibility of decorating surfaces that have complicated shapes (spherical or curved) and high exploitation characteristics together with immense decorative powers.
Here we present the mosaic of high quality glass that is made of silicon sand and other components with aggregation of coloring oxides, gold powder or aventurine. These mosaics are waterproof, resistant to chemical agents and changes in temperature and can be applied to walls or floors of bathrooms, kitchens, swimming pools, facades, etc.
