Trencadis is also a type of mosaic, however unlike Roman mosaics, Trencadis primarily uses small pieces of ceramics, glass and marble. Unlike traditional mosaics, the mallet is not used to cut the tiles, instead glass cutters are used to help shape the randomly broken pieces. Trencadis is a technique with almost limitless potential, and was used by Gaudì to decorate the the façades of his buildings.
It is also possible to create small objects or table (for indoors or outdoors) and various types of materials can be used such as old broken pates, bathroom tiles, recycled glass, even marble and stones. The only limit is your fantasy and creativity, and Trencadis can be applied to all manner of everyday objects and walls, including those in your kitchen, bathrooms or garden.
