Vines of Venice

Vines of Venice

Your first night in Venice, and there’s a full moon. Virtually alone in Saint Mark’s Square, you notice a lively group in full costume joyously prance through the square and disappear out of site. Because you can, you follow in pursuit of the night ahead. Twisting and turning narrow alleyways over worn canal bridges, you follow a map of Italian accented laughter.

Stop.      Listen.   Music and flickering candle light. An historic Venetian Villa overlooking the Grand Canal. Not even Casanova would believe it.

They gesture you in. The grandeur of a true Masquerade is beginning.

Every tile has a story... let this one tell yours.

Encaustic cement tiles have been called many names over the past 2 centuries: concrete tiles, encaustic tiles, cuban tiles, mosaicos, and hydraulicos. These amazing art tiles have stood the test of time and are spread across all corners of the world.

Each tile can be in any color combination up to 5 colors.
Added marble, granite, or mother-of-pearl made from recycled pearl buttons are available in all patterns.
Solid color tiles are also available.
