The Tile Makers

The Mexican handmade glazed terracotta wall tiles which we import are made in a family-run workshop in the state Guanajuato. The whole process – from digging the clay to firing and decorating the tiles – is carried out by the workshops. The handmade tiles are made using a mixture of three different types of clay and an ingredient that adds flexibility to the mixture. The clay is rolled out and cut by hand, then fired in a kiln, resulting in an unglazed ‘biscuit’. These are then glazed and fired again. Variations in colour and size result from the position of the tiles in the kiln, the duration of firing, and the composition of the clay. Dolores Hidalgo is famous for its pottery and tile-making – subsequently there are many workshops and factories for making tiles. The predominant style is a form of Talvera (the Mexican name for Maiolica). A distinguishing feature of this technique is the decoration over the glaze.

The History of Mexican Tiles

Mexico has a long history of making handmade tiles. The techniques were introduced to Mexico by the Spanish over 500 years ago, but the history of tiles goes back further: they were first used decoratively in 400 BC in Egypt. In Mesopotamia there was little stone but clay was abundant: the use of clay for writing and for decoration was encouraged. The technology for creating clay tiles was passed to The Persians, and then to the Arabs, who brought it to Spain. The technology then moved through Europe and then to the New World. Dominican Friars eager to tile their monasteries brought Spanish ceramicists to the New World, and taught the indigenous people how to make tiles. Three hubs for making tiles were established: Puebla, Mexico City and Dolores Hidalgo. Our Mexican tiles are made in Dolores Hidalgo.
