Marble tile is one of the oldest and most traditional tesserae materials used
in mosaic art. There are a number of famous mosaic pieces throughout the world
that have been designed using marble tile.
The natural color variations of marble and its durability and strength make
it an ideal material. It is very heavy and can be quite chunky, therefore it is
an excellent medium for floor based mosaics.
The natural color variations of marble allow the mosaic to reflect the
natural tones whilst still attaining the aesthetic pleasures that beautiful
mosaic art can create.
