ABOUT OUR TILE

These unique decorative ceramic tiles are handcrafted in Tucson, Arizona USA, by skilled artisans using techniques as old as western civilization.

The cuerda seca or dry line decoration technique used on these tiles, sometimes referred to as a wax and glaze technique is one of the oldest methods known to man for ceramic glaze decoration. Examples of a similar form of this technique date as far back as the ancient Assyrians of about 3000 years ago.

Today skilled artisans hand apply each glaze color to an undecorated ceramic tile. When the glaze is dry the tile is then fired in a ceramic kiln to a red hot 1850 degrees F, which gives the tile both beauty and the durability of the ages. The artisans of Masterworks Art Tiles have been making decorative ceramic tiles for a quarter of a century.
