Vetrissimo Elegance | Glass Mosaic
Shiny glass with metallic underglazing & tumbled edges. Small tumbled glass rectangles of various sizes are mixed and mounted on approximate square foot sheets. The glass rectangles are shiny with metallic underglazing. The tumbled edges give each piece a softer, more organic shape. Within each color there is a range of tones creating movement and variation. The chipped corners, cracks, and surface irregularities accentuate the overall trenchant appeal of its old world artistry.
Sheet size 1.02 sq ft
Usage & Installation
Elegance is suitable for interior walls that get some moisture, like shower walls, but should not be used in steam showers, saunas or any area submerged in water. It may also be suitable for low traffic interior floors but scratching will occur.
Glass requires special installation: Only use white adhesive with high adhesion and elasticity which are especially recommended for installing glass. To avoid trowel marks and shadows showing through the glass after installation, smooth out any trowel marks with the flat edge of the trowel. All substrates should be properly reinforced to be sure that there is no movement. For mortar installations, the mortar bed has to be cured (less than 2% humidity) and has to have proper reinforcing. Please refer to the TCNA Handbook for specific information regarding installation of glass tile.
Glass tile may be susceptible to scratching in handling and installation, as well as use. Tile may not be perfectly flat or square. It is important to mix tiles within each carton and from several cartons to get a proper blend of variation. Expect variation of color from production run to production run.
