Mosaics are artworks created by arranging small, distinct, three-dimensional pieces on a surface. As for the pieces themselves, a wide variety of materials, shapes, and sizes can be used, ranging from ceramics to metal, wood, glass, and more.
Mosaic tiles have one side that is glossy and colorful, and another side that is matte. These mosaic tiles are made from materials like kaolin and clay, and they are fired at high temperatures. A layer of siliceous glaze is added to the top surface, providing the mosaic with its shine and durability.
Mosaics, created by placing different pieces of various colors side by side, have been used in architecture since ancient times. It is an art of surface covering applied to floors, walls, and ceilings in temples, houses, villas, and even on roads.
