mika contact us because he liked the sea turtle ceramic tile mosaic shown below. i told him of the difficulties in producing a 30" ceramic tile sea turtle and suggested doing 2, 18" sea turtle tiles instead. we have better success with that size ceramic tile. originally mika wanted his mosaic tile design in a square configuration, but i suggested a round medallion ceramic tile design. it's much more pleasing to the eye and looks far nicer when viewed in any direction.
