Hand Made Tiles
Welcome to Derby Pottery and Tile. The tile we produce is really hand made. Not machine made with some hand finishing, or hand loaded into the kiln, but hand made every step of the way. From the plaster molds in which tiles are formed to the glaze mixing, application and firing, and all the steps in between are done in house with our hands, heads, and hearts.
Since we operate as an artisan studio, we are able to respond to customer special requests and considerations.
Victorian tile is our focus. Period patterns are guaranteed as we use collected artifacts from the Victorian period as the primary source material to generate our plaster molds for tile making. Our color palette is researched, vintage Victorian as well. Colors are strong, bright, and high gloss in finish.
The main difference between one of our tiles and an antique original is that our are glaze is lead free. This is important both for the health of our artisans, and the environment.
