Catalan term or phrase: ciba
"La tècnica del trencadís és una variant de revestiment que Gaudí va portar al paroxisme, barrejant-lo amb CIBES ceràmiques a la casa Batlló, amb vidre o amb altres materials; les xemeneies del Palau Güell en constitueixen un bon mostrari."

"ciba", that is a ceramic glass disc--


Explanation:
I've just find the catalan term and I guess you would paraphrase better than me.


ciba
<Indústria del vidre>


ca ciba, f


Disc de vidre obtingut per bufatge, obrint en calent un globus i aplanant-lo per rotació.

NT: Aquest procés permetia antigament obtenir vidre pla per a vitralls, el qual es coneix per les alineacions curvilínies i concèntriques de les butllofes d'aire que conté.

Explanation:
I can only find this reference, but if German is right (as I am sure he is), the glass discs lying on the green tablecloth in the photo could be the 'cibes' referred to in your text.

Hope this helps anyway.
