Ceramic tile is made from clay, talc, kaolin and some other bonding materials. There are thousands of formulas and recipes for ceramic tiles. Each factory has its own formula and raw materials depending on the area where locally sourced materials are available. Each factory has its own recipe and years of trial and error.Which is better porcelain or ceramic tile?
We get asked this question all the time. Porcelain tile is more durable and will wear and tear better. However, due to its low absorption rate, vibrant colors and designs are not available in porcelain tiles. Ceramic tiles, while limited in commercial tile applications, can be produced with thousands of lively vibrant colors. In addition, many unique designs and patterns can be easily applied on ceramic tiles. This makes the expression of art and individual design much easier on ceramic tiles.What about Status Ceramic Tile collection
Status ceramic tile was found in Seattle Washinton almost 40 years ago. It took founders of this factory decades to develop their own ceramic tile formulas, also called recipes. Each clay color, fruits, and colors in glazed ceramic tiles react differently to various firing formulas in kilns and the way glazes are applied. When Status Ceramic Tile factory owners retired, Country Floors bought the factory and its decades worth of hand made ceramic tile tradition.One other factor made this factory unique. Tradition of wet presses gave a lot of flexibility to make unique designs and shapes. Gifted craftsmen make these molds from chalk which requires tremendous talent and partisanship. These molds are hand-carved and last only so long. Every 400 or so presses they have to be remade. These tiles are hand-pressed and then dry at room temperature. They are then fired in small kilns. Finally, end product is glazed by hand and fired again.
