Handmade Ceramic Wall and Backsplash Tile

  1. 1. Wake up your walls! Natalie Blake Studios www.unaluntile.com

  3. 3. Creating the Tiles <ul><li> </li></ul><ul><li>Porcelainia-stoneware clay is rolled flat, cut into squares, and draped and smoothed over individual forms </li></ul><ul><li>These forms create the undulating quality of our tiles </li></ul>
  4. 4. Creating the Tiles <ul><li>Once firm, the clay tiles are removed from the molds and a slip of red iron oxide is brushed onto them </li></ul><ul><li>The design is then carved, free-hand, onto the tiles </li></ul><ul><li>This traditional style of carving is called sgraffitto, an Italian term meaning “to scratch” </li></ul><ul><li>The carving removes the top layer, revealing the contrasting layer below </li></ul>
  5. 5. <ul><li>When laid next to each other, carved tiles form contiguous or abstract designs of any size wall relief.   </li></ul>
  6. 6. The modular format of the tiles can be adapted to suit architectural niches, angles, large or small spaces, and curved walls.

  20. 21. Cleaning Tiles <ul><li>Wash with a soft rag or sponge and mild detergent. </li></ul><ul><li>A green 3-M scrub pad can be used gently to remove scuffmarks on most glazes. </li></ul><ul><li>Tiles with matte and porous surfaces should be treated much as one would treat suede; use a clean, non-lint tool such as a toothbrush or lint free cloth to gently lift the dirt out of the glaze pores. Mild soap and water can be used. </li></ul>
