ADVERTORIAL - 

‘Panorama’, ‘Crystals’ and ‘Ossido’ are a range of glazes that may be applied to both terracotta and lava stone. The casting process occurs at 1000°C.

‘Panorama’ features a simple satin or polished surface finish.

The ‘Crystals’ surface finish is very bright and glossy and looks like it is under a thin layer of fragmented glass, creating a ‘crackle’ effect.

‘Ossido’ features a technique whereby the pigments used in the smelting process combine differently between one tile and the other. The glaze looks particularly great when used on lava stone because the metal components inside the stone interact with the colours and pigments used during the smelting process to create beautiful effects.
