The basis of our product

The basis of the hand crafted terracotta product is wood-fired clay from our kilns's own quarries. The clay is shaped by hand or moulded into wooden or stone moulds and decorated by hand according to traditional techniques that have been perfected over the centuriesHaving dried for a couple of days the product is cooked in wood fired ovens at 1080° C. 

The striking shade variations that are typical for terracotta is due to the stacking of the tiles and pottery; the lower parts of the oven where the fire touches the product, are hotter than the upper parts and contain less oxygen which has a lasting and beautifying effect on the terracotta product. 

As a result of the hand made processing and using wood for the cooking process, the terracotta tile has  light colour nuances so that every tile has its own original appearance.
