Mosaic, the art of putting together tesserae through meticulous and labor-intensive setting to form various patterns, is one of the most powerful ways to decorate floors and walls of your residence, thus to fully express yourself. Robert, has a combined 50 years experience in the custom flooring and tile business. The product of both Sicilian and English parents, Robert’s passion to carry on his Sicilian family’s artistic legacy shines through in his careful detailing; eloquent testimony of his devotion, dedication, and determination to carry on one of the oldest human crafts. Mosaic tiles are cut in much the same way they were generations ago. Mosaic tiles are not so much cut as they are broken into shape, which calls for concentration and skill to get that perfect fitted piece, achieving the right shape and appearance.
Mosaic is an ancient art form with a rich history that dates thousands of years and is one of the original recycled products. For centuries, artisans have used recycled glass, stone, pebbles, and even shells to create low maintenance, high impact mosaic imagery. Mosaic tile and glass is the ultimate choice for green surfaces due to its inherent durability, sustainability, and timeless beauty.
