Glazed tube lined decorative tile.
Artist: Benaya Design House
Size: 8 x 12 inches
For centuries, hand painted ceramics have been revered and collected by people of all walks of life and cultures. Each tile is hand made by taking the raw clay to form a bisque blank, where the picture is drawn and tube lined by hand. Colours are applied in layers to give the rich depth perception. Finally, it is fired at 1000 degrees Centigrade for 22 hours.
Benaya have invested in new glaze formulae to avoid crazing as much as possible, which will be evident in these products. The construction of the clay material and the paint/glaze material are very different, and the varying temperatures cause minute amounts of shrinkage and expansion at different rates resulting in 'Crazing'. Crazing can happen at different stages fo the tile's life, ranging from hours after being fired to months or even years later. Master craftspeople consider this type of product to be alive (living glaze), and liken crazing to tiles as wrinkles are to people.
