Hand Made Tile 101
HAND MADE TILE
Hand made tiles can range from a simple subway shape, to artistically hand painted designs. There are numerous companies that create stunning handmade designs which can be placed in homes and commercial spaces alike.
HOW IT’S MADE
Most handmade tiles are made with a ceramic clay body. Once the body of the tile is formed in the correct shape, the tile goes through an initial firing process. After that, the tiles can be carved or painted to the company or the client’s desire.
Hand made tiles are not right for every job as they are more delicate than porcelain options. Some great applications for hand made tiles are kitchen backsplashes, bathrooms, decorative trims, fireplaces, etc.
