Cuerda Seca Turkish Inspired Tiles

Known for intricate textiles, tile work, and the decorative arts, design in Turkey is a lively mix of east and west, old and new.

 

A brilliant but short-lived episode in the history of Anatolian ceramic production was the appearance of tiles decorated in the so-called “cuerda seca” ("dry cord") technique. In the cuerda seca process, thin bands maintain colour separation between glazes during firing.

This technique was developed in the 15th century to prevent coloured glazes from running together, allowing for the creation of intricate coloured tile designs.  These Villa hand glazed tiles are perfect for custom tile work in entryway murals, swimming pool tiling, kitchen backsplashes, and bathrooms with a difference.
