Glass is actually not solid, in the technical sense. It is rigid. It is formed by heating dry materials to the point of viscosity and cooling the result quickly so that no regular crystalline structures form. Quartz has a regularly crystalline structure holding its molecules in rigid, defined positions and is considered a solid. Glass has the crystals, but the molecules are random and disordered. More like a liquid.
Glass mosaic tile from Éco Dépôt Céramique is a good choice for a floor or a wall, because it combines the translucent depth of glass over a wonderful variety of color and design. That glass provides a sparkle and luminosity to any surface it covers, as well as the non-porous quality that makes glass mosaic perfect for high-moisture environments like kitchens and bathrooms when properly installed.
This is the time of year when a gardener starts thinking about the season ahead. If you have a way to start seedlings, they may already be in their pots and ready to poke tiny green promises above the soil. Plants are the star of any garden, and they deserve a supporting cast.
Using glass mosaic tile to add your favorite colors to planters and stepping stones can be another way to get ready for the season ahead. Imagine the shimmer of glass tiles beneath the water of the birdbath and around its base and the beauty of color on the surface of a standard concrete garden bench. These simple projects are easy to do with kids and give them a sense of accomplishment when they see their handiwork last throughout the years.
