The Beginning of the Mosaic

The mosaic is an expression of art for designing patterns through insetting the wall or floor with colorful pebbles, shells, tiles, or glass slices. The Sumerian mosaic wall of the temple is the earliest mosaic architecture that has been found.

In the early periods, the Greek used the marble mosaic very often in black and white to match well each other. Only the powerful ruler and the very rich man can afford the craftsmen and buy the material to express this kind of luxurious art. In the later period, the Greek artists have enriched their mosaic work through smaller stones slices and incised the gravel stone into slices manually.

The Mosaic has already developed very popular in the Rome period. The civilian houses and the public constructions usually used mosaic in decoration. If you have seen the movie "Gladiator", you'll know obviously the Rome were so rich at that period, and the architectures of the ancient Rome were incredibly luxurious.

The golden age of the mosaic stemmed from the growth of Christianity. At that time the Rome persecuted the Christian, whom could only get together in underground passages or crypts for meetings. Most of them were illiterates; therefore the mosaic murals were inset for describing the stories of their Lord on the wall.

Constantine the Great is the person who has legalized the Christianity and advocated it strongly. The churches in Istanbul (Byzantine) were usually decorated in a great deal of mosaic. More and more colors were used in decoration, and even the gold foil was fired and inset into the transparent glass pieces. The Sicilian Mosaics were the most representative of the gold background. The Byzantine era almost equals to the Mosaics.

Orange use two kinds of mosaic materials to make the mosaic murals for you. One is th glass mosaic. Different from the other tiles or marble materials, the glass mosaic of nil water absorption is the most ideal material for the bathrooms, swimming pools, kitchens, and the rainy outdoor constructions. By the way, it is easy to clean up.

Glass mosaic is acid-proof and the whole tile is cover with the same color, therefore it can durably last the original color inset in the mosaic mural.
