The Olde English Tile Collection features the decorative tile making technique of encaustic or inlaid ceramic tiles.

During the Middle Ages, this technique was used to decorate public buildings and churches throughout Europe, but especially in England. A variety of designs depicting this era are illustrated in this collection. Notice the geometric, heraldic, Fleur-di-lis, cross, and acanthus leaf motifs. Traditional borders and moldings are also available to complete the collection.

Encaustic tiles are high-fired ceramic clay tiles. The design is pressed or stamped into firm clay and then the indentations are filled with a contrasting color of clay(s). The design can be made in as few as 2-colors or as many as 6-colors. Customize your design, choosing from 4 colors of clay bodies and 23 colors of inlay (overlay) colors. Each design will be a product of your own creativity.

After the tiles have been fired and cooled, a finish is applied to the surface. This stain is used to enhance the “antique” appearance of the tiles. Olde English tiles are extremely durable and are suitable for indoor and outdoor wall and floor installations; kitchens, bathrooms, showers, fireplace surrounds, wet bars, wine cellars, stair risers, feature walls, entry foyer, patio floors. Caution: Use in pool surrounds and fountains in temperate climates only. These tiles are suitable for both residential and commercial projects
