Things of beauty stand out; assembly line products do not! Mosaic Stone Art taps into the beauty of nature with colors and patterns found in stone. Here fitted slices of stone are intricately inlayed forming a painting in stone. Pietra dura (Italian: ['pj??tra 'du?ra]) is the term for this technique. It first appeared in ancient Rome in the 16th century and relates to its exquisite tile mosaics. Pietra dura is the procedure of using cut, fitted, highly-polished colored stones to create both pictorial scenes and geometric patterns. This historic form of art shows the unique beauty of stone with its natural colors and patterns. By using stone as the medium, there will never be two pictures alike.
Mosaic Stone Art uses these same qualities when creating a picture; namely, a sense of history, natural beauty, and intricate workmanship to reflect the feelings and emotions of our customers. Therefore, it becomes an original work of art that is both beautiful and personal.
