About our Hand Painted Ceramic Tile

How they are made
Our Hand Painted Ceramic Tiles are painted, one at a time, on ceramic tile bisque. For most of our designs, the artists use the Majolica technique, which is a centuries old method of creating painted ceramic tile. Originally an Italian art form known as Maiolica, this technique begins using a lead and tin glaze which forms an opaque white surface on the face of the tile. The decorative design is then stenciled our drawn on the tile and the pattern is then hand painted in with a brush. Before being fired, the colors look dull, and not like their true hues. The tile is then fired in a kiln where the metals oxidize due to the high heat, and the true colors are able to be seen. Often, a clear glaze is added and the tile is fired again, creating a high gloss finish.
