History of Mosaic Tiles

Ancient art made from mosaic tiles thousands of years ago can be traced back to ancient civilizations, including Mesopotamia, Rome, and Greece. Art created from mosaic tiles flourished in ancient Greece and Rome, where these stylistic choices took off within architecture and interior design. These recognizable works of art usually depicted scenes from everyday life, nature, mythology, and essential symbolism. 

As mosaic art evolved, seeing this medium within churches and religious buildings became common, especially within the Byzantine Empire. Beautifully intricate work depicting religious scenes was a quintessential design element of the time. During the Renaissance, mosaic art regained popularity, with Michelangelo and Raphael incorporating its usage within their works. The Islamic world also adorned its architecture and building interiors with these beautiful patterns; a famous example would be the Alhambra in Spain

Mosaic tiles are still very popular in the modern world. It is a preferred artistic expression for many and is still used globally for various architecture and design projects. The general process of making mosaic tiles is as follows:

Material Selection: As mentioned above, mosaic tiles are made from glass, ceramics, and stone. The person selecting the materials for refinement will make choices based on the vision for the final appearance based on factors such as durability and texture. 

Cutting: Once the appropriate materials are selected, they are cut into uniform-sized pieces. Glass and ceramic materials usually require specialty tools to cut them into ideal shapes and sizes. 

Coloring: If the material lacks natural color, it can be dyed using pigments or dyes before or after cutting it. 

Application: The artist arranges the pieces to create the desired effect. Once they are in the ideal position, the artist adheres to them using an adhesive material. Common surfaces include walls and floors. 

Grouting: After the pieces are applied and secured with the adhesive, grout fills the gaps between the tiles. This material helps hold the tiles in place and provides moisture penetration. 

Cleaning/Finishing: After the grout has dried, the surfaces are cleaned to remove excess grout and provide a clean and shiny surface. Do not skip this step; it ensures a professional and clean appearance. 

Sealing is sometimes applied to protect the surface from stains and moisture. 

Installation: Installing mosaic tiles often requires a professional’s artistic capabilities and skill with the craftsmanship and technical knowledge of the application process. Enlist the help of an artist for this step!
