Glass Jar for Mosaic Tile Display

There is a human-factors aspect to displaying/storing tile in this way. It’s the opposite of “out of sight, out of mind.” When the color palette is readily visible, artists make better decisions about color.

That is why many experienced artists keep a color wheel tacked to their easel. They are painfully aware that what a color looks like depends on what other colors are around it. Having your colors arranged and on display in a format where you can easily put one color next to another is a huge advantage in the studio.
