Fused glass mosaic with varying characteristics. The chips, some colored and others clear, are produced with and without surface iridescence. The iridescence is created by a hot gloss coating process. The Metal collection consists of slightly irregular square chips 4 mm thick and 10×10 mm in size, mounted on glass fibre mesh. The chips form sheets of 327×327 mm with joints of about 0.9 mm*.
*The irregularity in the chip shapes is intentional and helps to make this product special; it is an intrinsic feature and not a defect. Metal may have a mirror or non-mirror finish. This characteristic is provided by a specific additional cold process in which a thin gilded metallic film, protected by a special varnish, is applied to the underside of the chip. This gives the mosaic a time-worn antique effect. These two types of chip are only suitable for indoor use. They are also not recommended for use in bathrooms and/or any other particularly damp locations.
