What makes Chapter 6 Reef Glass a unique offering in the Jeffrey Court list of Chapters?
Chapter 6 is a stunning collection of glass tiles and mosaics featuring a soft frost finish in a fresh color palette. As the name “Reef Glass” implies, the core of our design is to bring the feel of the coastline indoors by employing the soft and lustrous texture of beach glass. Our design team created distinctive mosaic patterns that are the perfect complement to the very fun, yet elegant coastal motif.
What are the key features of Chapter 6 Reef Glass?
Chapter 6 features six vibrant colors and is segmented into two general categories: Glass Field Tiles and Glass Mosaics.
The color palette of Chapter 6 provides six fresh colors: Lily, Palm, Aloe, Coconut, Marina, and Oceana. Colors ranging from a brisk white, lush foliage greens, tropical aqua, and a deep ocean blue are sure to enhance any coastal inspired design.
All six colors are offered in a traditional 3×6 subway tile and an inventive 6×16 field ideal for contemporary designs. In addition to the field tiles, a ¾”x6 liner is available in each color for that perfect finishing or transition piece.
Offered in each color are five mosaics featuring patterns designed to inspire various coastal themes. Nori, Shoal, Reed, and Pebble are offered in solids where Strand is presented in a monochromatic three color blend.

Setting Material and Grouts:
- A high-quality white thinset meeting ANSI 118.4 or 118.11 is recommended for best installation results. Always check with setting material manufacturer to ensure suitability of material in setting glass tiles.
- As per the Tile Council of North America (TCNA): “For cementitious grout, joints smaller than 1/8” generally should only be grouted with unsanded grout, and joints bigger than 1/8” should only be grouted with sanded grout.”
- Epoxy grout was used on all Marketing Materials (Montage Boards and Touch Boards) for the Chapter 14 Collection, pre-sealing material prior to grouting with epoxy grout is a must. Example recommendation: Aqua Mix® Grout Release.
- A professional grade wet saw outfitted with a high-quality diamond blade designed for cutting glass tiles is recommended. Always cut tiles with the face up. Sanding of cut edges is recommended to ease “sharp” edge.
