Redland Clay Tile. From the heart of the land. Naturally this ideal befits the name, because the clay of every two-piece Redland tile is truly of the earth.
A harmonious union with the very land that helped create it.
Historically, clay tile was formed by hand. As a result, personality was always a part of the handmade process.
A process that is perfectly imperfect, with pleasurable variations in color, texture and shape that identifies a bond between the craftsperson and the craft itself.
1. How are Redland Clay Tiles selected?
Review the tiles available to select a profile then select the color blend(s).
2. What does the term flashed mean
Redland creates authentic fire-flashed tiles through a kiln process that produces a burnt finish on the tiles. Unlike other manufacturers, Redlands flashed tiles are not created artificially by methods such as spray painting or coloring the tile.
3. Regarding the blends that are shown with three tiles, can a single tile be selected in that blend?
No. The three tiles pictured represent a random range of tiles that comprise the (multi-tile) blends. The inherent randomness of fire-flashing is not capable of being produced on a single tile.
4. What does sandcast mean
Sandcast is a term used to describe a matte-finished, textured tile manufactured with a rustic mud-wash surface and a thumb butt end.
5. What does thumb butt mean
