The classical beauty and boundless potential of mosaic borders

(4 min read) So I intended to write this article as an introspective piece about a variety of topics, but with a particular focus — subtlety. I myself have never been accused of subtlety, as you’ve probably already realized by now. So let’s talk subtlety in mosaic artworks.

One could argue that the mosaic craft itself is so intricate and detailed that there isn’t much subtlety in it. However, the subtlety and inconspicuousness of the mosaic lie in it as a finished art piece. Some of us will go for that discreet artwork with its delicate patterns and muted colors, while others will go for the one with a colorful scene and its explosion of vibrancy. Ultimately what you’ll go for in mosaic art depends on what kind of impression you are trying to achieve and even on what type of personality you are.

If you are not the one to have a larger-than-life artwork hanging on your living room wall and you would rather just have a pretty and discreet detail here and there, we have a perfect solution for you — mosaic borders. Mosaic borders are often being neglected as an artistic expression because of their limited size and use, but they are being neglected unrightfully so because mosaic borders can be just as beautiful and eye-catching as a bigger mosaic piece.

You don’t have to break and remove old tiles to make a change, because mosaic borders will work like a charm.

    Not sure about subtlety though, because as you rightly pointed from the beginning, mosaic craft itself is so intricate and detailed that there isn’t much subtlety in it.
