Our selection of ceramic tiles reflects our collection of hand-painted vases: Minoan, black-figure, red-figure and white-ground. Made for us in Greece, they are painted by hand, so there may be a slight variation in colour from piece to piece. In order to make them look as close to the original as possible, many of the tiles have a 'craquelure' effect, to replicate the fine pattern of 'cracking' formed on the surface of the paintings, in particular due to the ageing of paints and pigments.
If you plan to place these outside, but we suggest that you apply a coat of transparent PVA sealant to protect them from rain and frost. They are supplied ready to hang, with sturdy, embedded metal strips or, if preferred, they can be incorporated as features within a tiled wall.
