Mosaic Art

After wandering among many mosaic art designs, we noticed a great variety of mediums. Some artists upgraded mosaic art into a widely extended dimension with a second-sighted vision, using unusual materials like Rubik cubes and apples. Read More

Other artists stuck to more traditional mosaic techniques and used natural and synthetic stones. They emphasize on the creativity of the design rather than on the medium. They handcraft with marble, glass, granite, quartz, pebbles and ceramic tiles. Marble tiles and smalti glass tiles were the most common mediums used in mosaic projects.

Smalti glass is produced from large slabs of glass, to provide pure hues that can’t be found in marble tiles. Glass tiles are regularly seen in the walls and vaults of churches. Marble is more durable than smalti glass. In fact, marble and limestone have been frequently used in floor designs since 200 BC. Also marble was the main medium used for portraits and figures that need meticulousness and precision.

Mosaic marble art inspired us to elect the ten most amazing marble artworks amongst many other designs.

Enjoy the list of 10 impressive marble mosaic artworks!
