During the last few years, mosaic has attracted great interest as material for both facings and floorings. The aim of this study is the design, development and technological characterization of a new coloured mosaic, able to be produced even by small-scale plants or craftsmen. The main innovation is the application of a traditional ceramic process to a glassy material, starting from a mixture of clay, feldspar and frit. Experimental procedure tested and characterized many compositions, varying both clay mineral and clay/feldspar ratio, and assessing the possibility of colouring the materials through the addition of ceramic pigments, colouring oxides, or coloured frits. A glassy mosaic with a suitable aesthetic appearance and fulfilling many standard requirements for sintered ceramic tiles was obtained.
