    Florentine mosaic is rightfully considered as the queen of mosaic art. Its artistic effect is based on careful selection of color shades of stones using their natural pattern. Thin stone plates are shaped in accordance with the displayed subject or its corresponding detail. These stone plates are made so that they ideally fit to each other.

    Florence is considered as the birthplace of Florentine mosaic. That was the place where in the XVIth century the first workshops appeared, which produced stone pictures. The most widely used material was marble.

In “Artel”, the mosaic is composed of hard Ural stones. This is its main peculiarity and advantage because hard rocks are more resistant to abrasion, physical impacts and do not fade in the sun. Moreover, Ural stones possess wider spectrum of color palette which also provides the artist with significantly broader possibilities.
