Perdomo Smalti

Perdomo Smalti
Hard-to-find New World Smalti by the Perdomo family of Mexico. Created using the traditional methods of Murano, but with local ingredients and minerals to create a unique product. The glass is poured into 'tortillas' and hand-cut vertically with a hammer and hardy to produce tesserae that are roughly 18×18 mm and 5-6 mm thick; this cut is called Piastrine in classic Italian mosaics.
As it is thinner than Italian smalti, it is easier to work with, and cut Mexican smalti also offers a special advantage of having both a 'right' face and a 'wrong' base side that display subtle colour and texture variations. This means that by flipping a piece over you gain even more colours and finishes. Additionally, as each piece has a greater surface area, there is a wonderful range of tonal marbling within a single colour shade. However, this also means that there are greater batch differences per colour, therefore, please buy enough of a colour at one time to complete a project. We recommend that you use Leponitt wheeled nippers to get the best results from this extraordinary product.

We wrap and package orders carefully to avoid damage and breakage, however, due to the nature of glass, ceramic, and porcelain, damage may occur in shipping. All tiles and accessories are shipped at your own risk.
