Photo-Form LLC is a tile studio which provides designers the ability to create bas-relief tiles from photographs. Utilizing a patent pending process called Photo-Cast ™, they can create bas-relief tiles from any type of two dimensional image.
The tiles used can either be made of gypsum or ceramic, for a better durability. Both tile types are currently available for wall mounted applications only. Floor tiles will be available in the future.
Other materials are also available, such as cast tiles in rubber, plastic, and clear acrylic.the ceramic tiles are suitable for exterior use as long as they are properly installed. Blue and red glazes are not preferred for outdoor applications due to fading. The Gypsum based tiles must be sealed with a suitable sealer such as a Terrazzo Sealer for outdoor use. For interior applications the tile should be sealed with wax or a clear acrylic spray to prevent oxidation.
