hand made subway tile with turquoise crackle glaze

hand made ceramic subway tile with turquoise crackle glaze

This is our most popular glaze. You can see why, right? It's rich and jewel-like and the subtle colour variations run from sea green to deep mineral turquoise.

Our subway tiles are unique. The usual method for creating hand made subways is to roll out a big sheet of clay on a slab roller, then cut each piece from the slab, either by hand, or with a template. This creates a nice tile with crisp edges and a uniformly flat surface. But what people love about our subways is their sensuous rounded edges and their very tactile softly varied surface texture - all this in a uniformly sized and shaped tile. Our secret is hand made plaster molds. We press each tile by hand into a hand made mold. We have about ten different molds just for this plain subway piece, so each piece is a little bit different in surface character from the next.
