Introducing the first user friendly line of marble tesserae! Marble tesserae are usually cut from tiles that are 3/8 inch thick. Our tesserae are custom cut from tile that is only 1/4 inch thick.
Tesserae are available in the 9/16 by 9/16 by 1/4 inch size in polished finish. The metric equivalent is 15 by 15 by 7 mm.
The image shows our loose tesserae mounted on sheets - you will receive ONE POUND of LOOSE tesserae. Each pound will cover an area of about 6.3 by 6.3 inches with no grout space. Each pound contains about 108 to 111 pieces depending on the weight of the marble type.
Much easier to cut with hand held nippers - you are cutting 30 percent less marble so you will find cuts are more accurate with less spoilage.
The 1/4 inch height will match standard ceramic, porcelain, thicker glass and laminated flooring products - no more need to use an indirect method of mounting or shimming your mixed medium projects to have a smooth surface!
30 percent thinner means 30 percent less weight for tables or wall surfaces to support yet still strong enough for flooring in low traffic areas. Price per square foot is less than comparable 10mm thick tesserae!
We will use a Priority Mail Flat Rate Box which costs $5.20 to ship 1-3 lb, $10.95 4lb and up for ANY color OR combination of our craft marble types and includes Delivery Confirmation. Insurance is optional and at additional cost.
