Creating an Impact with our Freehand Wall Tiles - Jun 20

Raku firing is an incredible ancient Japanese ceramics technique that has been used for centuries. Dating as far back as the 16th century, traditional Raku pottery is known to have been used by the Zen Buddhist masters who liked its simple naturalness.

The technique of Raku is when pots are taken from the kiln while they are still glowing red hot, and then placed in a combustible material to catch fire, such as newspaper or sawdust. This then provides the glaze of the pot with a wonderful variety of colours and textures. For potters, it’s an exciting and varied way to create, as each individual piece will turn out looking different and unique.

New for 2020, our Freehand collection replicates the spectacular shading and craquele effects typical of traditional Raku ceramics. This high-impact wall tile range is guaranteed to create standout design statements within any manner of commercial space for a striking and sophisticated look.

A celebration of colour, structure and depth, these high gloss tiles are available in seven appealing colourways that, when used together, will add depth and structure to any space. A versatile collection of warm and cool tones, the dark shading frames each tile, creating a sense of handmade rusticity reminiscent of the traditional techniques. The eye-catching gloss and unusual tones create a truly beautiful focal point to be admired.
