The art of pebble mosaic:
The art of pebble mosaic paving has come down to us from the ancient Greeks of over 4000 years ago. Floors in pebble mosaic add that special touch of luxury and are often seen on Greek islands as well as in mainland Greece. Even so, it is an art form that is still evolving. Pebble mosaic paving is at once both practical and decorative. It is ideal both indoors and out. Pebble mosaics adorn gardens, courtyards, paths, workplaces and exhibition areas, public squares, walkways, civic buildings, places of worship, museums, swimming pools, shops, spas and a host of other places too.
