Larger Tiles on a Shower Floor

I have seen a few shower floors that have used larger tiles (8" and larger) that were cut in several different ways so the slope can still be maintained with a large grout line.

In my case, i used 13" porcelain tile on the bathroom floor and wish to continue these tiles into the shower floor, but know it will be difficult to use these with the slope. Something similar to the shower at the bottom of the page on this site: ceramic tile pictures

Is there any special way to cut the tile or any tricks that can be used to use larger tiles for a shower floor?

My shower is 33" x 60" with a corner bench.

U can go back where U purchased the tile and purchase a 13'X13" moasiac, 6X6 or smaller versions of the same tile just smaller so U can follow the slope.

Some tiles are not available as a moasiac or smaller. You can cut the 13X13 into 3"X3" sq's on a wetsaw ( depending on the tile edge and set each tile induvually.

I hope this helps.
