A lovely picture of a colourful canal boat travelling alongside a viaduct with a train going along.
These beautiful and unique artistic tiles are hand crafted, hand painted and fired with brilliantly colourful and complex glazes. The artistic process is extremely labour intensive. The first step is to draw the image on the rough tile surface and then carefully apply the relief work, which creates the unique three dimensional outline. The ceramics are hand painted with several layers of glazes that enrich the textures and vibrant colours. The tiles are fired in kilns for 24 hours at temperatures reaching 1000 degrees celsius (1800 farenheit). A full day is needed in the kilns to ensure that the artwork sets into the body of the tile, creating a permanent image that will never dull or fade. The tiles are mounted on to a felt board with a hook which allows you to easily incorporate them into your home decor. Alternatively they can be displayed on a flat surface with the inbuilt stand.
The Benaya collection of artistic wall plaques includes a great range of styles from subtle to dramatic.
Would make a wonderful gift
