A while back I blogged about an exciting tile called Mosuprema. Looking like rock candy trapped underglaze, the title intrigued me from the moment I first saw it in the showroom. We finally got to use it in a new fireplace surround and the results are awesome. Take a look at the following pictures to see what I am talking about.
A combination of vertical slivers and 2″ x 2″ tiles on the hearth make up the new surround
A close-up shows the slivers, grouted in brown, and a trim piece done in cherry wood painted black with a sand through effect on the edges.
An Egyptian mosaic harmonizes with the tile, trim, and built in entertainment center, also by Mac-Bo.
The home owners could not be happier and there is talk of using the tile again but as a kitchen backsplash this time. Suprema!
