Ceramic Tile Deck From Spain Gets Its Own Twitter Account
Posted On June 22, 2021
Ceramic tile decks are an ancient tile design that originated in Spain in the late 19th century.
The design features an array of decorative tile patterns.
This ceramic tile deck is from Spain and features three different patterns: blue, green, and purple.
The original Spanish tile design was known as “La Paloma de la Tenerife,” and was created by the Spanish architect José de Torres de Márquez.
He used two different designs to create the ceramic tile decks, the Blue and the Green, but his Blue tile was more popular in the United States and Europe.
According to The Guardian, the ceramic tiles are designed with the same exact principles as traditional tiles.
“These are not simply pieces of tile, but the combination of three or four of the tiles,” says Matt Scholten, who created the ceramic decks at Drexel University in Philadelphia.
“They are not merely decorative, but also functional and aesthetically pleasing.
You get a beautiful result.”
The designs are currently available in Spanish, French, Italian, German, Dutch, Swedish, Polish, Danish, and Spanish.
The tiles are made from a variety of materials, including ceramic and concrete.
Some of the materials are hard, while others are softer.
“The materials used are all very different,” says Scholsten.
“For example, in Germany, they are made out of a different material that has the same properties.
So, for instance, they use clay.
There are some materials that are more expensive in Spain, like mica, which is used to make concrete.
They have to do with different production techniques.
We were fortunate to be able to be in touch with some of the manufacturers of these tiles.”
Scholsten has spent the last few years creating ceramic tile counters that are inspired by Spanish ceramic tiles, which he says were inspired by the tile’s original Spanish design.
“There are several styles that are based on the Spanish tile,” he says.
“It’s a very old design, and it’s a wonderful, beautiful design.”
The ceramic tiles aren’t the only thing that inspired Scholzen’s ceramic tile design.
He also created a ceramic tile countertop from scratch, which you can see below.
This ceramic tile tile counter top from Scholbensten and his wife, who are from France, is inspired by ceramic tiles from Spain.
They call it the “Blue-green-blue” ceramic tile.
