Oceanside Glasstile's 'Prose' mosaics make a striking impact

I recently completed this vignette for a showroom in Tucson, AZ.  

Amy and I had the opportunity to collaborate together on this project from design through installation. We had the challenge of creating a warm and inviting focal point in a very large showroom environment.  To do this, we selected Oceanside Glasstile's 'Prose' Mosaics in a 1/2" x 4" offset pattern because of the tactile characteristic of a linear module.  

I would highly recommend this glass tile product for any focal area.  From a distance, this installation appears as if it could be a woven textile, but coming closer, iridescent flashes give away the fact that it's actually thousands of shimmering glass tiles.  


Pre-existing granite countertops directly influenced our color selections, the favorite being a blue-grey accent we found running through dark veins in the stone.

We used a combination of iridescent and non-iridescent finishes to create a sense of undulating texture.  

The finished product is rich, warm and inviting, even in a large and open showroom environment.  We love it!

  1. Awesome install, Luke...I don't even see any sheet lines. It's as though you've worked with this tile all of your adult life (of 6 years). :-b
