Spanish Tile Fountain

Spanish Tile Fountain

The peaceful sounds of a water feature are enhanced by the presence of delightful and colorful hand-painted tile. Spanish Andalucia patterned tiles frame this outdoor fountain, white tiles are used around the base and deep blue tiles create a refreshing water line and accent strip.

The Andalucia design uses soft, subtle colors that, in this instance, add color without taking attention away from the statue and the fountain. The neutral tones also compliment the wall in the background.

Using Hand Painted Tiles for Fountain

  • Use 4x4 or 3x6 listello or border tiles to frame a wall fountain. They can be mitered for arches with minimal impact to the tile pattern. Use a complimentary field tile to cover the area inside the border.

  • Use 6x6 pattern tiles to create a mural for a wall fountain. Frame the mural with ceramic molding in single color.

  • Use tiles with a dark blue glaze for the water line to create a strong, bold statement.

  • Use light blues or aqua-colored tiles for a more subtle and soothing effect.

Hand Painted Spanish Tiles Featured in the Project

With a rich pedigree of Spanish pattern and colors, the Andalucia tile is created using traditional Majolica glazing techniques. The patterns are hand-brushed by the tile artist so expect variation from tile to tile. Remember, these tiles can't be used in outdoor environments subjected to freeze/thaw cycles.
