Every once in a while I get to go shopping for a client and come back with something I find really exciting. Take tile for instance. In this example, I was charged with finding an alternative to a very homely fireplace surround. I discovered a tile called Mosprema that looks subtly like rock candy trapped under tinted glaze. I can’t wait to see these reflecting firelight in a darkened room. Take a look at the following shots to see what I’m talking about.
From a distance, we see “slivers” of glass tile.
Upon closer inspection, we see that each tile contains rock candy-like chunks of glass under the surface of the glaze; they catch light and sparkle. Stay tuned to see how we used these around the fireplace opening.
