Palms Glass Cutting Guide

Palms glass from Island Stone offers a beautiful tile pattern and design. The unique shape is a bold large-format chevron glass tile that combines fluid wedge shapes to create a design as intricate as tropical palm fronds.

Due to the unique mosaic shape and thin structure of the Island Stone Palms Mosaic, it is integral to follow the below instructions when cutting pieces to fit the installation area.
