All the hand painted  ceramic tiles in these series are painted with the unique technique of under glaze ceramic hand painting. The tile pattern is first outlined with the black color and then the rest of the colors are hand painted on the tile. Once all the colors are applied the tile is glazed with a transparent lead free glaze and placed in a ceramic kiln. The kiln is fired up to a temperature of 1000 degrees centigrade (red hot) whereby the ceramic colors are sealed with the melting of the transparent glaze on the surface of the tile. The firing usually takes a cycle of about twenty four hours from start to finish.

A second type of decoration which we use is that of in glaze hand painted tile decoration. In this case the black outline is applied to the surface of a glazed and fired tile and then the colors applied by hand. The tile is again fired to a temperature of about 1000 degrees centigrade where the colors melt into the glaze of the tile.
