Saffron Picker

Fresco Tiles Inspired by the 'Saffron Pickers' on the wall paintings of Thera

Polished slip surface. Similar technique to that used in Ancient Greek Pottery.

These tiles have the aged and weathered look of ancient frescoed walls. Instead of a conventional glaze, they have a satin finish, fired to 1045 Centigrade for colour stability, and are sealed to ensure they are impervious to water and grease.

From De Ferranti's Thera Tile Collection

More about Fresco Tiles:

Inspired by Ancient frescoes, our tiles have a unique timeless, dusty and dry-looking fresco finish.

The feel is satin rather than glossy and is intended to have the look and feel of an old frescoed wall. This is a process unique to De Ferranti which has proved popular with people looking for something a little different. Most of these designs can be adapted to a conventional glaze and vice versa.
