Mosaics are often classified by the method used to produce them, in this case "micro"-mosaic, hence what we now call micromosaic a term coined by Sir Arthur Gilbert . Micromosaics are mosaics made of very tiny tiles called smalti filati. Works of art were often produced with smalti filati so small that 1,400 of the tiny tiles fit in each square inch. Micromosaic was at the peak of its production in Rome in the nineteenth century.....
Il Gruppo Mosaici Romani SPQR
Il Gruppo Mosaici Romani SPQR was founded by Aldo Anzaldi e Maurizio Pennacchia. We are researchers of the AREA Archaeological Group which is working in the southern Etruria territory. The passion for archaelogy has allowed us to discover another passion, that for the Roman art, for the Hellenistic Roman mosaic in particular. We have established a very precise period in the mosaic hystory, the Imperial period, where we find the greatest magnificence of the Roman mosaic, especially since it coincides with the wide urban expansion and the construction of huge buildings.
Inspired Mosaics provides excellent mosaic art from a nationally recognised mosaicist, Liz de Ath, for public spaces, gardens, balconies, wet rooms and kitchens as well as bigger pieces for commercial settings like cafes and entertainment centres. Mosaic-making courses also run throughout the year at the Brighton & Hove mews workshop.

Jonathan Hunter Mosaic Design
An exciting range of mosaic and styles to suit all interior design needs, whether it be residential or corporate, there is a mosaic for any situation.
For the office foyer, a table perhaps, or the facia on a bar area. To enrich kitchens, bathrooms or the entrance hall of a home. A mirror over the fireplace, or the fireplace itself. Retro or modern, the possibilities are endless.
Jonathan Mandell Mosaics
Born in Philadelphia in 1962, Jonathan Mandell is now one of the nation's leading mosaic artists. He began his pursuit in the fine arts during his senior year at Northwestern University, where he was enrolled in a general sculpture class. The fundamental concepts of sculpture, stone carving, and clay modeling interested him. He was influenced by the art of mosaic while he was at the University of Pennsylvania.
I create art to illustrate how I see the world, using color, texture, and light. I use mosaic and sculpture as a means of personal expression, a reflection of life experience, and as a tactile language of universal symbolism. I find beauty in the fragments of colored glass, in the sensuality and smoothness of clay, and in the contrast of light and texture. I believe a sense of humor enhances the colorful, amusing, and strange struggles that make us human. I enjoy interpreting and rendering images in a stylistic and fragmented way. Mosaics satisfy my urge to make things whole.
