Descrizione articolo


Tiles are a beautiful form of ceramic that lend themselves to an extraordinary diversity of uses and treatments. In this outstanding overview, Kenneth Clark, a distinguished tile designer and maker, introduces readers to their creation, ornamentation, and use. Tile making using earthenware, stoneware, porcelain, and paper clay is fully described as are the decorative techniques, like painting, screen printing, and sgraffito. The work of leading tile designers is also examined, along with their approaches and applications. To complete the book, Clark offers practical information on the uses of tile, including floors, walls, roofs, fireplaces, murals, and swimming pools; details on how to repair tiles; and advice on how to protect and care for them. Written by an expert, and with 280 color photos, The Tile is sure to captivate anyone interested in learning or appreciating the skills of this age-old craft.
