When a glass tile backsplash comes to mind, the first thing that many people think of are the characteristics of glossy tiles; vibrant colors, reflections, and a smooth finish. Known for thinking outside the box, Susan Jablon has started a revolution in the tile world with her ability to â€œFrostâ€ any glass tile for a new unique and mysterious look.
The frosted finish transforms each glass tile giving bold and vibrant colors a more calm and muted finish. The frosted glass tiles no longer appear transparent or translucent, but instead have a cloudy surface that brings mystique flair to any room.
When glass tiles are put through our frosting process at Susan Jablon Mosaics, the entire surface of the tile is etched. Unlike other companies that apply a matte film to the surface of their tiles, which may scratch or chip, etching the surface gives our frosted tiles a matte-like finish that will last. Each glass tile is etched by hand in our studio by our experienced artists, ensuring that all frosted tiles have a perfect and evenly frosted surface.
Using our frosting process we can even customize any bijou or mirror tiles to have their own unique designs! The Cosmos Glass Tile line is a Susan Jablon exclusive that catches light in a new unique way. This line uses our advanced etching process to create circle designs that literally pop out at you. Add these fun polka-dot tiles to your own custom blend in our Custom Mosaic Designer for a one-of-a-kind tile design for any home.
