PAT02 Fresco Patterns


These tiles all have a unique "Fresco" finish. The feel is matte rather than glossy and is intended to have the look and feel of an old frescoed wall. This is a process unique to the Douglas Watson Studio which has proved popular with people looking for something a little different. Most of these designs can be adapted to a conventional glaze.

Prices for these tiles varies, please enquire.

Please see "Glazes/Finishes" on the right for more information on Fresco tiles.

Choosing Your Tiles Choosing Your Tiles

All of our tiles are handmade in our Oxfordshire studio using traditonal processes. Almost any designs and finishes can be achieved, however, here are a few ideas to get you started…

Tile Shapes

Aside from our standard sizes of 10x10cm (4"x4"), 13x13 cm (5"x5") and 15x15 cm (6"x6"), we have "Brick" or "Subway" tiles, 13x 6.5 cm and 15x 7.5 cm and 10x 20 cm.  We can also cut tiles to specific sizes.  This is particularly useful when designing tiles for a fireplace, where standard sizes may not quite work.

We also have "Scallop" or "Fishscale" tiles in 2 sizes, 8x7 cm and 14x11.5 cm.

See "Tile Shapes" in the single Tiles catalogue.

Glazes / Finishes

Our tiles comes with two basic finishes: Glaze and Fresco.  

Glazes  These can be a conventional plain glaze, or a crackle glaze.  The crackle can be "Natural"--in the glaze but not emphasized, or "Enhanced"--easily visible.

Antique Look also called "distressed".  We can create an antique look to give the feeling of age.  This can be strong or subtle.

Colours Various shades of white are possible which are very effective when mixed.

Fresco A unique finish developed by us to give a satin finish.  This is not a glaze but is durable and fired to 1040 degrees. Suitable for all interior walls but NOT FLOORS.

Tile Bodies The ceramic tile on to which glaze is applied.  There a Regular and Rustic. See "Tile Types" in the Catalogue.

Border Tiles

We have a large range of Border Tiles which can be seen in the catalogue.  Borders can be used by themselves with plain undecorated tiles, or as a surround to a panel or collection of single tiles.  

They can also be very effective as surrounds for fireplaces.
