History of Pebble

The rivers flow to lakes, seas or oceans at the end of hundreds or thousands of miles long paths by flowing among the mountains and hills towards the valleys.
The rock pieces that break from the mountains and hills due to various tectonic events, temperature changes, intense rain will tumble down inside the rivers. These rocks that move with the varying flow of the water will hit each other and break down into small or large pieces. Water as the greatest abrasive material tumbles downs these rocks for thousands of years to turn them into round surfaces globular stones.
At the end of their path, these stones end up in the sandy coastline consisting of silicium, calcium carbonate ad aragonite. At this stage, the waves took over the job to give the final form to the pebbles. The waves drag and take back the pebbles to the beach thousands of times over a long period.
The globular pebbles are sanded with this movement and take a flat and elliptic form. The pebble stones used in pebble mosaic are singlehandedly selected and collected and laid onto the surface. The flooring is created with natural or geometric patterns depending on the color.
The result of these thousands of years of the journey is the heritage of the civilization which is called Pebble Mosaic Art.
