We are a husband and wife multi disciplinary artists with a passion for Art, we established our Art studio in 1984, having studied Architecture “The Mother of All Arts” we came to appreciate and explore Art in many of its forms, we have great respect to its elements. We worked with different mediums and produced art pieces enjoyed by many for over 3 decades.
Mosaic art has been our passion for over 20 years. We currently own and operate a Mosaic/ glass studio in which we are successfully teaching the art of mosaic, and stained glass, we are also creating masterpieces and making Mosaic and stained glass supplies and tools conveniently available to the consumer.
Having the Pharaohs as our ancestors where Mosaic art came to life and where stained glass was first produced 2000 years BC, for all civilisation to enjoy and frequently travelling on artistic ventures, we have been exposed to countless masterpieces of mosaic art all across the Mediterranean where it flourished, including Italy, Alexandria, Jerusalem and Jordan. We have come to master the beautiful tradition of one of the first forms of art known to man.
Glass Mosaic Canada is a Toronto-based company run by a talented team, inspired by a love for the ancient mosaic art form. We established the company in order to make techniques, high-quality supplies, services and support readily available to mosaic artisans and mosaic art students.

Mosaic Adds Creative Spin
People are always looking to add a creative spin to their kitchen, either by rebuilding one from scratch or adding a decorative touch. The backsplash is the key to a beautiful kitchen as it serves as the main focal point. It unites the countertop with the cabinets and the flooring into one artistic theme that reflects your style, decor and favourite colours. Since we can never overlook the time spent in this part of the house, it must be relaxing. Without a doubt, a mosaic backsplash will liven up any kitchen and add an artistic flair in a unique and beautiful way.
At Glass Mosaic Canada, you can create your own backsplash. They can teach you how easy it is to do, or they can design and prepare a mosaic backsplash for you with easy-to-follow instructions for installation. They even offer installation themselves. The art of making mosaic is itself a way to manage stress and achieve relaxation. For more details, call 416-252-TILE (8453) or visit GlassMosaicCanada.com
