Dating back to Greek and Roman mosaics – before being popularised in the art nouveau and art deco movements – the peacock motif has provided the inspiration behind artist Veronica Tommasin’s latest designs for Trend’s glass mosaic Best Collection.
Composed of thousands of micro mosaic tesserae in the classic tradition, Veronica’s designs have been translated by Trend into decorative mosaic modules using digital technology. To achieve the exact shades envisaged by the artist, Trend has produced two new fused glass tiles – Brillante 276 and Brillante 277 – which are rich, dusty Wedgwood blues.
Trend’s Best Collection artistic decorations comprise Peacock, a Peacock White variation, and floral motif, Gardenia. A refined exercise in style, the deceptively simple Gardenia design is made up from a total of 17 Vitreo and Brillante 1 x 1cm tile colours in the white-blue spectrum.
The latest executions by Veronica are precisely replicated in 1 x 1cm glass mosaic tiles, employing advanced CAD software. The micro mosaic format minimises the pixelated effect on complex mosaics – especially when used with colour-matched grout lines – enabling an ornamental style akin to painting and textiles.
Underlining the range of shades available in Trend’s 1 x 1cm colour themes, the various blues, whites and lustrous black have been selected from the semi-transparent Vitreo collection and the coloured glass Brillante range, which is enriched with sparkling veins of enamel and avventurina stone.
