Ceramic Tile by Florian - Scottish Deerhound
Florian Tile of Dorset, England, has been producing high quality hand-decorated ceramic wall tiles since the 1960's. They offer over 100 different dog breeds.
Florian is a family run business specializing in producing unusual and imaginative designs on tiles. The designs are produced by well known and local artists. These tiles are mainly wall tiles for kitchens and bathrooms and can also be made into gift items such as trivets, table mats, clocks, cheese boards, pictures, or they can be displayed individually on a stand.
The tiles are produced by first making a silk screen from the original artwork. The screen is then individually hand-screen-printed onto a bisque tile and hand-painted with under glaze ceramic colors. The tile is then glazed with a transparent glaze and fired at over 1000 degrees centigrade in a kiln. This traditional method produces a rich and subtle effect of color not possible with transfers.
These original artwork tiles are as functional as they are beautiful.
