Mosaic Work Called Trencadis by Gaudi at Park Guell

Mosaic Work Called Trencadis by Gaudi at Park Guell

A closeup of a serpentine bench adorned with mosaic work known as trencadis at Park Guell, Barcelona

Trencadis, the technique that consists in breaking tiles of different patterns and different shapes to compose a single mosaic was constantly used by Antoni Gaudi and his followers. This particular shard with numbers on it reminds me of notations made by master masons or stone cutters on ancient walls.

  4. I was here earlier today and thought I had left a comment about your post but I don't see it now. Sorry. I must have left one and forgot to save it.

    I like the post because the design is so special and vivid in colors.

  5. I'd like to do the same in a wall outside my house (as I admire Gaudi so much), but I wonder how difficult it is.
    When I visited Park Guell, I really fell in love with this square above the coloumns!
