Our Tile and Murals in all cases will be hand painted. We will show different tile producers on different pages.

If you are interested in a mural e-mail us and we will down load the murals to your e-mail

Uriarte Talavera Tiles and Murals are handmade, hand cut, and hand painted. All others are hand painted but the clays are cut with a template or by machine..

In all cases the total decoration is by the artist. Some producers use a combination of stenciling or silk-screening and do a minor touch up by brush and state the tile is hand painted or decorated. This is not the case with tile you will see on the following pages or in this website.

Uriarte Talavera tile will have the most variance in size, color, thickness, and trueness since it is a total handmade process and in some cases produce there own glazes.

When calculating the number of tile needed for 4 x 4 +/- tile we recommend using 4 1/8 center of joint to center of joint. Please note that joint size will be approximately 1/8 wide not the customary 1/16 wide joint seen with machine produced tile.

Tile Tips:
Know what you need before placing an order or installing your tile due to the following:
A. Your tile is hand made and takes time to produce. Normal is 3 months.
B. Know the shapes you need. We recommending avoiding special shapes such as mud caps, and angles for several reasons call us and ask why.
C. Know what side or sides require finished edges (bull nose). In many cases a tile can be rotated and the side or sides that the bull nose is on makes no difference but beware this is not always the case.
D. Know where you are making your cuts. Do not leave this up to your contractor to decide.
a. He may make a cut where it is not desirable.
b. He could cut more than is required making you short tiles.
E. Order some extra tile. The number of extra tile depends on the number of tile you order in each of the patterns and the number of tile cuts.
F. Have a scaled plan of your tile project. The project will go faster. If you are contracting someone to install the tile for you with a plan you will give you what you want not something you did not want because of a misunderstanding, or have a delay claim because the contractor had to stop and wait for a decision. It also puts less stress on you since you know what you want before the project is started and do not have to try to remember what you wanted when the tile was ordered or make a quick decision which may result in an error and coming up short of tile because of incorrect cuts or placement of patterns.
G. It is also recommended to use a good waterproofing mortar if tile will be subject to water, or tile used for counter tops. If in doubt as to a good waterproofing mortar o add an additive such as Hydrocide produced by Sonneborn. A waterproofing joint will make clean-up easy and resist staining.
H. Talavera and More will offer will provide specifications and produce scaled drawings upon request for agreed on fee based on the project.
