HISTORY OF MOSAIC PRODUCTS

PRODUCTION OF MOSAIC CANDLE HOLDERS

The way the glass is heated and cooled can significantly affect the colours produced. We use colourful glasses for candle holders’ production, there is no usage of dye while making mosaic products. We cut big plates of colourful glasses with special scissors into small pieces. Then we create a motif with small pieces and handle them one by one. Production of these small pieces for mosaic candle holder is artisan craft. Even the production process of the smallest mosaic tea light takes 40 minutes.
