They are all "before" photos? Oh, okay.

Hi, Greg.

Does the tile have a solid backing to the front metal shell?

Is the tile rated for wet use of a shower?

Hi, Todd.

The size of mosaic tile on the pan of a shower floor is much more typically 2" to allow them to conform to the shape. Sometimes, I'll go as large as 3"...but that's pushing it to the...

The Kerdi drain has a wide rim around it and has a fabric-like material bonded to it so that the Kerdi can bond to it.

Agreed. And, if possible, I'd get under the floor and put in some support to prevent the excessive vertical movement from foot pressure.
