Tile Shapes

There are three standard sizes for our square hand made tiles: 100x100 mm (4"x4"), 127x127 mm (5"x5") and 150x150 mm (6"x6").  The thickness for all tiles is 9 mm.  We make all our tiles ourselves in our studio in Oxfordshire.

Special Sizes

This Fighting Ships plaque was made to fit in at the top of a fireplace.  All the other tiles (also battleships) were standard 13x13 cm, but in order to fill the space we needed to make this tile slightly wider.


fireplace tiles

We can cut tiles to any size not greater than 17cm in one dimension, so 17 x 30 cm is possible.  This is especially useful for fitting tiles into fireplace surrounds as in the "Birds" fireplace.

In this Colour Block panel, we used several non-standard sizes, cut to fit.
