Brief History of Glass Mosaics

It is thought that the earliest glass mosaics date all the way back to 2500 B.C and have since spread across the world and influenced all types of designs. Ancient glass mosaics exploded with life and colour and beauty, often being part of gargantuan displays which drew awe and splendour but also incorporating smaller more intricate designs.

Glass mosaics have portrayed not only people across the ages but also the gods themselves. Below you can see the beautiful mosaic of Zeus and Ganymede.

Glass mosaics have been used for thousands of years to portray vitality and beauty but also pain, emotion and individuality. This has been possible because of the rich and varied colours only available in glasswork. 

With modern glass mosaics it is possible to tailor and customise to any specification, which is where L’Antic Colonial comes in.
