Most of our mosaic surfaces are created from 99% pre-consumer recycled materials. They will be marked as such.
A hanging method is provide for each mosaic surface. Most have a keyhole slot that accepts a nail or screw head, while some possess a hanging hole or bracket. Most picture frames also have an easel option so they can be set on a horizontal surface.
As with any manufactured products, small variances in color, surface, and appearance may occur. These variations will not affect the intended function of the products and actually add to the overall character of your creations. All mosaic surfaces are sold unfinished.
We guarantee that all of our products are free of manufacturing defects and will replace any parts found to be otherwise.
A mushroom is the fleshy, spore-bearing fruiting body of a fungus, typically produced above ground on soil or on its food source. Like all fungi, mushrooms are not plants and do not undergo photosynthesis. The standard for the name "mushroom" is the cultivated white button mushroom, Agaricus bisporus; hence the word "mushroom" is most often applied to those fungi (Basidiomycota, Agaricomycetes) that have a stem (stipe), a cap (pileus), and gills (lamellae, sing. lamella) or pores on the underside of the cap.
"Mushroom" describes a variety of gilled fungi, with or without stems, and the term is used even more generally, to describe both the fleshy fruiting bodies of some Ascomycota and the woody or leathery fruiting bodies of some Basidiomycota, depending upon the context of the word.
Forms deviating from the standard morphology usually have more specific names, such as "puffball", "stinkhorn", and "morel", and gilled mushrooms themselves are often called "agarics" in reference to their similarity to Agaricus or their place Agaricales. By extension, the term "mushroom" can also designate the entire fungus when in culture; the thallus (called a mycelium) of species forming the fruiting bodies called mushrooms; or the species itself.More Details: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mushroom
