Metallic copper overglaze on earthenware. Handmade in our Toronto studio.
Cork buttons on the bottom.
Grooved in the back for hanging.
Heat resistant and suitable to be used as a trivet.
- Xenia Taler tiles are pressed in molds made of wood, or extruded. Glazes are mixed from scratch. All tiles are decorated by hand. Our wall hanging tiles come with a groove in the back for hanging as well as cork on the bottom and glazed sides. They are suited to withstand heat and can be used as coasters and trivets. Our installation tiles are thinner and have unglazed sides for grouting. Applications include kitchens, bathrooms, fireplaces and tabletops. Either thin or thick tile can be used for installation but it is better to order the thinner tiles with unglazed sides if you are definitely planning on installing them. Most soaps and detergents are fine to use. Avoid acidic or abrasive cleaners. Also avoid children with permanent markers. (Seriously, the marker die will seep into the crackle.)
