Botanical Tiles

Glithero’s handmade Botanical Tiles are made with the plants from London weeds that have been stored in our herbarium presses over the years. The specimen are pressed, preserved, archived and eventually used to create intricate compositions for our murals. The ceramic tiles are hand-made in collaboration with a team of Dutch craftspeople. They use traditional tile cutting and tin glazing techniques, that are practised in the Netherlands for over 400 years. Glithero’s botanical designs are directly transferred to cloths that are used to stencil traces of the designs onto the tiles in a charcoal. The craftspeople then meticulously scribe designs into the glaze, capturing the the botanics down to the finest detail. The kiln eventually fuses the glazes in a brilliant traditional blue and white. 

Our Botanical Tiles are suitable for wet areas such as kitchens and bathrooms and can be produced in custom colours.
