Italian Black and White Carrara Marble Contemporary Mosaic Tiles with Florentine Monuments


Shipping cost: €50,00
Total: €500,00
In the present work small handcut tiles of pure white Carrara marble are the background of this interesting contemporary mosaic which represents one of the most celebrated landmark in Florence. The facade of the church of Santo Spirito (Holy Spirit), designed and built by Brunelleschi, is created with precious beige-colored Botticino marble tiles and surrounded by a frame of small black glass glazed paste tiles. Carrara and Botticino are among the most famous Tuscan marbles that’s why the local mosaic artist and craftswoman- who creates this superb work of art- decided that the mosaic featuring the most important symbol of Florence should be made of these materials. To make the composition more interesting, two different types of Carrara marble were used: the statuary white marble is matte and the white Carrara marble called "zuccherino" (sugary) is more sparkling. The random alternation of these two marbles give a pleasant vivid and three-dimensional effect to the entire mosaic tile. Each small rectangular and squared tesserae are hand cutted and each one of these mosaic is one of a kind. The mosaic plaque has a wood panel as support and the tile is housed in hand painted giltwood frame. The tile on sale and immediately available now is 15x15 cm and reproduces the church of Santo Spirito (Holy Spirit)- as you can see in the main image- but many other mosaic with the most important symbols and monuments of Florence are available as the Old Bridge, Santa Maria Novella, Florence's Cathedral with the Brunelleschi's dome or the Lily symbol of the city and so on, as showed in the photos. These white and black marble mosaic tiles- directly inspired by the Renaissance city of Florence and dedicated to its most famous monuments and churches- are a limited edition produced by a local artist and artisan on the occasion of a contemporary art festival held once a year in Florence. The Florentine mosaic artist and craftswoman has dedicated her production to Florence, creating mosaic tiles using this ancient technique – with hand cutted tiles- in a very fashionable and contemporary way. The mosaic plaque has - in this case- a wood panel as support and the tile is housed in hand painted giltwood frame. These mosaics are a beautiful decorative object for your home. The tile can be displayed as a centerpiece or in a display case or hung on a wall. More tiles of different sizes make a great scenic effect. These mosaics can also be used to cover an entire wall instead of using tiles. A bigger mosaic panel should be used as a table top. Different sizes and different subjects available on request production lead time 2-3 weeks from the order (15x15 cm, 20x20cm, 25x25 cm or bigger). The frame could be finished in different ways, it could be silvered or lacquered upon request. Bespoke production available on request also on client's design. Don’t hesitate to ask for your one of a kind Florence inspired mosaic! Brand New Contemporary and Customized items are not returnable.
