Don't worry, tiny mosaic tiles in patterns is not the only way to achieve a mesmerizing look with tile. In fact, we've spotted a tile that doesn't foreshadow disappointment through imperfect setting at all. Encapsulate the spirit of a well-preserved organic material or fabric in the Poured Glass tile by 3form. A sister tile to the 3form Pressed Glass that was recently featured as a part of our Top Ten: Glass Tiles post, the Poured Glass brings natural depth inside, creating a premium end result.

Colorful and Organic Poured Glass Tiles
The technique used by 3form to create the look is based on a patent-pending liquid lamination system they've come up with that allows for even distribution of whatever object is being used, and also keeps the edges clean and exposed. Though some might seek out beveled edges or borders, the clean cut framing of the tile allows you to create frameless pieces of art that allow light to flow through it as though it were a semi-transparent wall.
You order the 3form Poured Glass tiles in made to order sizing that are ready to install and endure the daily hiccups in life. In fact, the clear surface finish on the tiles is easy to clean and non-combustible, so there is no reason to not celebrate the installation with your child's birthday party or a cocktail hour in fear that they'll blow up from a candle or be spilled on. This fact makes 3form the easy choice for all glazing applications, interior finishes, and light transmitting applications if you're looking to leave a lasting impression.
The Poured Glass tiles are made complete with a standard clear float glass. They can be custom manufactured if a project desires a low iron (colorless) finish, specialty finishes, and even etched designs on the tiles - all for an additional cost. Within the clear float glass, there is a resin interlayer that is used to manufacture the tile. Although it is rare, the expansion and contraction of the resin layer is different than the glass outer layer, thus making temperature the only issue for cracking or delamination in extreme cases.
