The Fiesole Terracotta Tile Collection includes reclaimed terra cotta that is cut by hand.
Then split for added texture and surface variation and combined with hand-painted tiles, marble, slate and semi-precious stones. A tribute to 12th and 13th century technique, these unique compositions embody both traditional and innovative design.
Terracotta, can be very easily defined as “baked earth”, and has a history dating back centuries, as previously noted. The typical uses over time have included tiles, mosaics, potteries of all types, roof tiles, drainage pipes and more. The body is usually relatively porous and may have been literally baked in the sun or fired in a kiln.
