They have also incorporated tile into the space near and around the pool, creating a personal backyard oasis. Whether you are looking for vibrant sparkling colors, intricate and elaborate designs, or an underwater escape from reality, Susan Jablon Mosaics can help take you there!


Here are ten ways you can incorporate glass tile in your own backyard oasis

Deep Blue Sea Many people love the way that glass tile can change the appearance of pool water.  With this in mind, we created a glass tile gradient that will make you feel like you are going deeper into the ocean or sea. This gradient design starts with lighter cobalt and aqua blue colors in the shallow end and, at the top of the deep end, it transitions down through deeper blues.
