black stoneware clay tile with spotted porcelain finish - Claire de Lune for Margate Tile Makers
Hand crafted using specialist black clay. The clay is first beaten and rolled out by hand, then hand cut to size, and left to dry slowly.At leather hard stage, the pattern is carefully hand chiselled in to the surface and edges are sharpened. Porcelain slip is slowly added to the tile, and left to dry further. Then the slip is scraped back to reveal the filled pattern. This is the final stage before drying completely. When they are fully dry they are slowly fired up to 1250 degrees over 5 days.
Due to each tile being handmade, there is lots of variation between tiles of the same design.
Each tile is 13.5cmx7.5cm and is 1cm in thickness. These tiles can be bought individually. For bulk orders, please contact us at email@example.com for pricing.
These tiles are perfect for internal and external walls (including bathrooms and wet rooms).
We recommend purchasing 10% more than the required surface area to allow for wastage / breakages during install.
Once a purchase has been made, we will email a comprehensive installation and maintenance guide specific to glazed tiles to ensure your tiles are laid and maintained to our highest standards.
