When it comes to wall coverings, there's nothing quite as spectacular as mosaics, especially the centuries-honed glass tile mosaics created by Italian artisans. The highly respected designers at Sicis Art Factory utilize these very artisans, as well as the wealth of glass makers in their country. From retro to modern, the Sicis designs are brilliance. One of Sicis's latest wall design collections is this ravishing, larger-than-life, group of 50's style Pin-Ups.
The tiny glass tiles, .06 inch each, are from several regions of Italy, and they all have different characteristics. They are carefully placed, pixelated to provide the effect of a distinct color, but their intricate placement give the complete work a sparkling visual texture. This is very rich design.
Each Pin Up is set off from her colorfully patterned background by an oval frame that looks much like a mirror, further emphasizing her beauty.
Let me introduce you to the voluptuous cast of Sici's Pin Up Collection. Any similarity to specific Hollywood beauties, past or present, is unintended! (I cropped the original Sicis photos to provide close-ups of the Pin Ups and to fit our space allotments.)
