Imagination Is the Only Limit

Water jet-cut mosaics intricate designs allow you to express your style and taste like no other tile offerings.
Mosaic art has been prevalent for centuries, adorning famous architecture all over the world. The centuries-old method of mosaics entailed taking tiny pieces of stone, glass and other materials to create pixelated, impressionistic works reminiscent of Monet. This required physical space and distance to be fully appreciated.
Water Mosaic Tiles jet machines are the new “mosaic artists,” giving a more intimate design to rough, faceless slabs of material. Water jet tiles are formed with high-pressure streams of water (here’s a video of the process) that allow for exact precision to cut ornate patterns that were previously impossible to achieve. Whether your style is edgy or classic or somewhere in between, water jet mosaic tiles will allow you to express your true inner aesthetic, making it all about you.
Once the mosaic tiles have been produced, they are assembled on mesh backing. The advantage of mounting the tiles on mesh is that the mosaic can be cut to different shapes and sizes, permitting customization and making it easy to cover curved surfaces such as columns, wavy dividers, chairs, rounded edges, etc., as the tiles are mounted on a flexible base.
With more than half a million square feet of tile in stock, you’ll find the perfect tile for your project at Tiles Unlimited. Whether you’re looking for water jet mosaics, encaustic tile or more traditional offerings, our designers stand ready to assist you in realizing your design dreams.
