Lunada Bay glass tile backsplashes are very hot here in the Tampa, Florida area
and have been for years thanks to Ceramic Matrix tile showroom in South Tampa.

This Lunada Bay (paper-faced) Agate "Lucca" Pearl 1x4 brick in Wesley Chapel, Florida
is about the 12th one I've done in 4 years. Love working with this glass tile!

disaster

i completed this bathroom job a couple of weeks ago, waterproofing was Aquadefence,here we waterproof the whole floor not just in the shower, porcelain tiles mapei epoxy grout, the plumber fitted the toilet the next day and nobody had been back to the job since, the owners were away for a 3 week holiday.
On friday i get a call from the builder that there is a cracked tile i go and have a look and the disaster unfolds, the toilet cistern has been leaking for 3 days its flooded the room run out the door, saturated the floor in the hallway and kitchen, run under the waterproofing and swelled the floor in about half the bathroom. one tile has cracked and several have lifted from the pressure of the floor swelling from underneath. looks like a insurance job for the plumbers, bad time of year to have this happen with xmas only a few weeks away and everybody being booked up.

Jim,

Is the toilet cistern what we call the tank? The thing that contains the water that flushes the bowl?

yes john, so this thing was leaking for 3 days so just like having a tap running on to the floor, if the owners wernt on holiday would have caught it straight away , bit of a bummer actually as they were really nice people and had already been mucked about by the various trades involved in the job, now i forsee weeks of more disruption for them.
the thing that irks me is i havnt been paid for doing the job and that payment will probably be held up now plus i will have to rip it out and redo it for the insurance co who will probably muck me about with payment as well

Jim I’d be requesting my payment for services rendered. Obviously their situation is a tough deal, and it would help maybe to be sensitive to their plight as you are requesting payment, I see it as a good faith payment on their part for you to feel at ease dragging the job out.

is that for people or fish or just decorative?

looks AMAZING.

How large were the mosaic sheets? How did you manage the circular shape when the mosaics are bonded on a sheet?

For people. There is a 20x50 3-6' pool "inside" the freeform negative edge. The sheets are 12.75" squares but everything curved had to be templated. The only other way to do that is one strip at a time. I guess 2 or 3 strips at a time would work but doesn't look as good. The templating took a while but in the end was well worth it.

Did you use software for the layout, or did you just do it manually??

Hey Mike. The curves on the pool were all done manually. I made a 60º template for the round spa with autocad and had a guy cnc a plastic negative. From there I made a grid to put the tile in and re-paperfaced it.
