Victorian Encaustic Tiles

Encaustic tiles are traditionally created using different colours of ceramic clay, with the pattern inlaid into the body of the tile. The different coloured clays can extend into the base tile colour by up to 6 millimetres in depth. This means the patterns remain visible even after centuries of wear.

Inlaid or encaustic tiles were very popular between the 13th and 16th century for use predominantly in ecclesiastical settings.

A revival of the technique began in the mid 18th century when the tiles were mass produced for use in residential properties to accentuate the traditional decorative geometric floor tile designs.

London Mosaic stock a wide variety of modern reproduction encaustic tiles and salvaged period tiles.
