Texture Time

Since the time of ancient Mesopotamia, mosaics have been used to add colour, texture, and pattern to homes. The historic art form, first used in the fourth millennium B.C., utilizes small pieces (called tesserae) of stone, glass, fired clay, or other hard materials to cover a surface, often to create a pattern or depict an image. Because the process was so labor-intensive, tile work was once found in only the most aristocratic houses. But now it is a versatile, hard-wearing, and practical option—ideal for kitchens and baths, of course, but also for walls and floors in other rooms as well as swimming pools.
