artfacts, gold tiles

Look what I found. It seems the gold tile was a sandwiched tile.

Mosaic supply company

I found this online. They are based in Atlanta but are a warehouse. So, you have it shipped to you. They have all kinds of tile from cermanic to glass to marble.

Mosaic classes

In any case anyone is looking for the perfect present for me. How about a class in Italy about Mosaics ? Just kidding. It fun to think a studio is doing Byzantine mosaics today.
