These wonderful tiles cut cleanly into tiny pieces with minimal waste, and so they are an ideal material for micromosaic artwork. They are hard and durable and UV-resistant and can be used for the exteriors of commercial buildings. The fusing process for making these tiles from powdered recycled glass is referred to as “warm glass” or “enamel glass” or “pate de verre.” Mounting grids are available.
St Georges Hall, Liverpool. Famously the World's first air-conditioned building. Some 30,000 Minton tiles cover 140ft by 72ft; the mosaic floor was laid in 1852. The hand-crafted tiles depict tritons, sea nymphs and boys on dolphins, as well as the citys coat of arms. Ref: Liverpool Echo (photo by Dave Wood)
