I love this Petra, do you know if these are ceramic or glass mosaics?,

Tony, I've found an information that the mosaics in Ravenna were mostly made of glass, with gold and silver leaf and nacre. For the two so-called imperial mosaics in the apse (one of them you can see here on the right) they used more than 320 000 particles.
For a closer view to the other imperial mosaic:

Thanks Petra, the last mosaic job I did before my illness took only 222.000 pieces :-)
