Shopping for THIN tiles for mosaic projects

I'm a mosaic artist and I'd love to buy some flat Moorish colorful tiles that I could then break up to use for mosaic projects (flat tiles are much easier to work with than cutting up china plates). They say I'll be able to shop for tiles in Triana, but is there anywhere in particular I should go for THIN tiles? (I need them to be thin enough that I can cut or break them). Thanks

in Calle San Jacinto you have some shops selling tiles and ceramics, i don't know exactly if thing enough, but you can ask them otherwise.

as a side note, know that you mention that you are a mosaic artist, I think while in Seville you shouldn't miss the opportunity to go to Italica, as it has one of the best collection of Roman mosaics in the world.

take a look:
