A splitface mosaic is a great way of showing off the "rockiness" of your stone installation. This incredibly visceral finish allows you (and your guests!) to have a look-and-feel at the stone that has built the Colosseum in Rome and the Getty Center in Los Angeles. Like our Ivory tile, the Ivory Splitface seems to have a sort of luminescence of its own.
Splitface mosaic does not require grouting, as each piece fits tightly together for a gapless installation. We've found that the best places for this mosaic are on borders (but not in a shower), feature walls, bar fronts, and fireplaces. Corner pieces can be made by interlocking the fingers at 90 degrees and using a hatchet to break off the ends that extend past the corner.
