How Inspiration Becomes Tile

From what we see in the world to final product, here’s how clay goes from beauty in the world to finished tile we share with you.

This limited edition (2016) ornament was inspired by a Mayan temple near Merida, Mexico. Cornelia created the design on paper and built a template to show size, color and layout. Ed then carved it into a clay master. From that master clay template, he made a plaster mold in reverse relief. The raw ornament tiles were made by using that mold, then allowed to dry to leather-like texture. Our artisans then hand-painted each tile in slip clay, following the template, which was then fired again with a clear glaze to create the final tile.

See if you can find the year hidden in the design. It’s in each one of our annual ornaments! (Don’t worry if you don’t see it here … this was one of our harder ones!
