This piece will remain un-grouted. I like the way the color pops on the black (actually dark purple). Because glass is not colored only on the surface (like ceramic tile) grout can take away from the colored sides of the glass. While most of the time this is what I want, because grout helps tie a design together, it’s also fun to experiment with leaving them untouched. It was suggested to me that I try using Smalti, which is a type of hand cut glass that you cut like stones. The glass is chunky and in various square (brick-like) pieces. But because they don’t lie flat (not supposed to) the edges and various thicknesses reflect light beautifully. I can’t wait to get my hands on some. I can either buy it pre-cut or invest in a new set of tools and cut it myself. Ill post more about smalti after doing more research.
