My old gallery was a shared space with a dessert/coffee restaurant. This was our sales counter. I love doing mosaic work but you have to have pretty high standards. I hand-grind the edges of every piece of glass until they are smooth. This is my rule of thumb for mosaic work...there cannot be a single sharp edge.
It is a pet peeve of mine to see craftsmen putting out table tops that you cannot run your hand over without feeling sharp edges. I picture children touching and running around every piece of furniture that I make. That is why my corners are sanded down, by edges are grinded off and my pieces have extra redundant bracing that makes them just a little bit more sturdy. Even my mirrors, when I use mosaic, have ground edges. If you can't run a dust cloth across them without snagging, that's just not good craftsmanship.
