Art and Crafts Modern

The beauty of artisanal tile lies in its imperfections. Because each piece is designed, molded, and glazed by hand, no two look exactly alike. Create a mural on a bar wall, use them as an acccent with plain subway tile, or mix a handful in with monochromatic squares to make your kitchen backsplash, bathroom walls, fireplace surrounds, even doorways spring to life.

Inspired by early-20th-century styles, these low-relief polychrome tiles are made using the Spanish cuenca process, in which individual glazes are poured by hand into the depressions formed by raised lines in the clay.
