TIN01 Glaze Tints


This is the range of pale colours you can choose from for areas of plain tiles and for backgrounds for decoration. Soft White, Ivory and Cream are the most popular choices.

Mixed Whites are made up from 6 different tints and are particularly attractive as a field of plain tiles. They can also be used effectively as a background for a collection of Delft images.

We have also created other colours for clients to match the colour schemes they are using. If we have a recipe to match a named colour, e.g. from the "Farrow and Ball" chart, there is no extra cost. If we have to create or match a new colour there is a charge according to the amount of work required.

All of these colours can be ordered in a Crackle or Non-Crackle glaze.

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.
