Hand Painted Ceramic Wall Plaques (F3 Lilly)
High quality hand painted ceramic Wall Plaque, Poppy in Blue vase painted in raised relief in vibrant colours that will never fade, each tile is a unique piece of ceramic artwork.
Each tile is created by first applying the raised relief for the design. This is known as tube-lining and is a very labour intensive and highly skilled procedure. A tool similar to a piping bag for icing, with a very fine opening, is used to apply lines of very fine clay to the surface of a tile to create the design. It is then hand painted, glazed and finally fired at over 1000 deg C for 24 hours. This ensures that the vibrant colours used in the painting will never fade, and that the tile maintains its quality for a lifetime. A black felt cloth covered board is then applied as a backing to the tile and a hanging hook is provided to enable the tile to be hung as a wall picture.
Alternatively, the ceramic tiles can be fixed to any kitchen or bathroom wall with standard tile adhesive, perhaps as a feature within a larger tiled area. The tiles are a standard thickness of 6-7mm so will match most plain tiles of any size. The tile backing can be easily removed by soaking in hot water for 20 minutes to soften the glue
