PAP05 Papal Tiles

These designs are from the PAPAL PALACE in Avignon, France.  The original floor tiles were made in the 14th Century.  Approximately 120,000 of them were used in the Palace--a mixture of decorated and plain glazed tiles.  All the designs here are accurate reproductions of the original, and like them, have been individually painted so that there will always be slight variations of the same design.

We use a mix of different background glazes for the standard range, and we can add a special transparent glaze to give different look--see PAP05-35 to 38.  There is also the option to use a blue rather than green colour, PAP05-39 to 41.  All designs can be painted in this colour way if desired.

These designs work well mixed with our Art Glazes, GLZ01

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.
