  • Uptown Glass Mosaic 1x1 Pearl series is a molten glass mosaic. Exotic and Metro series also contain some molten glass. Molten glass characteristics include irregular edges and some variation in size. These characteristics are inherent in standard production. These subtle size and shape variations impact the final grout joint appearance and enhance the natural visual of this series.
