Each tile we offer is a one of a kind "multiple original" work of art. While our designs are repeated, no two tiles will ever be the same as they are pressed from our own hand-made artist molds and then carefully hand-carved following the impressed images from the mold to create a crisp and highly detailed original surface. The clay is fired to 1940°F to harden the clay and prepare it for glaze-work. Once fired, the small sculptures are hand-washed with mineral oxide pigments and hand-painted with multiple colored glazes to enliven and enrich the designs. The final firing to 2240°F melts the glazing materials and hardens the stoneware/porcelain clay, creating a very durable and colorful work of art. Our tiles come finished with cork-backing and a hanging wire.

FOOD SAFETY: We use no lead, or free-cadmium in any of our utilitarian wares intended for food use. Our glazes are food safe, and we most often use a “liner glaze” on the inner surfaces of our functional pieces to ensure a hard, food-safe vessel that will not readily mark from cutlery. Our decorative wares (such as tiles) on the other hand may contain higher levels of mineral pigments, lusters and/or metals not intended for food use and should therefore NEVER be used in a functional (food use) manner.

DISHWASHER USE: We don’t recommend using a dishwasher. Our pottery will last much longer and keep its beautiful glazed surface when washed with love by hand. Automatic dishwashing detergents are caustic and harsh and will etch and dull the surface of handmade pottery.

MICROWAVE USE: We don’t recommend placing our pottery in a microwave oven. While many of our wares will withstand the rapid temperature increase with no problem, some of our pots that are glazed with highly metallic glazes may arc (cause sparks) in a microwave. Therefore, we recommend that you do not microwave our pottery.
