Glass mosaic tile design on Yacht

Tile Design on Master Bathroom – Yacht

In 2010 we were commissioned by a yacht building company to create a Mosaic Tile design (glass mosaic) that represents the identity or symbol (seahorse) of the yacht.

The material and design

We have proposed glass mosaics for this project because this design will be applied to the wall in the master bathroom of the 27-meter-long motor yacht and for this reason lightweight material comes into question. The original seahorse pictures were sent to us by the yacht building company. Before we start to create the mosaic image, we always make a drawing for the best conversion of the image to mosaic image. On such a drawing are all kinds of notes about the colors and details that simplify the creation of the mosaic.

2 Cm x 2 cm Glass Mosaics

The glass mosaic is 4 mm thick and each has a size of 2 Cm x 2 Cm. It would also be possible to create this Mosaic Tile Design project from 1 Cm x1 Cm mosaics. Since the design is not so complex we have chosen 2 Cm x 2 Cm mosaics. Mosaics with a larger surface are used so that they find a greater opportunity to adhere to the mosaic adhesive. In this case, it must also be remembered that during the start of the yacht engine a large vibration occurs, which plays a major role in the mosaic size.

the Beauty of Glass Mosaics

Glass Mosaic Tile Design - Process.
Glass Mosaic Tile Design – Process.

Glass mosaic is a beautiful material for interior and exterior use and through a custom design process can become a powerful wall, floor and swimming pool decoration element created in our art studio. Glass mosaics can be found today in almost all sizes and shades. They can also be easily attached to your wall, floor or swimming pool. But it will be even more interesting if you decide to create a pattern or a mural of your choice in our art studio from these glass mosaics.

Which glass mosaic is more suitable for my project?

There are many types of glass mosaics on the market with which we could create your mosaic tile design for your wall. The most used glass mosaics are Vitreous Glass Mosaics and Stained Glass Mosaics. Mosaic tile designs made of glass mosaics can also be grouped into 3 types in terms of design. This would be the pixel mosaic tile design and the traditional hand-cut mosaic tile design and that is created with a mosaic nipper.

The last two also divide into 2 and-that is once with gradients and once with no gradients. Pixel mosaic tile design and traditional hand-cut mosaic tile design have great differences in the production process and therefore in the time required for the creation of one square meter of mosaic tile design.

You can also imagine for yourself that it also leads to a big difference in price. Also the installation of the finished mosaic tile design has differences as pixel mosaic tile design are mostly about 30 cm by 30 cm in size. In short, at the very beginning of your mosaic tile design project you need to think well about what you want to see on your wall or floor.
