Essence Venice pattern wall tile 15x30cm by Mainzu Ceramica (Spain).
A red bodied ceramic wall tile with a rippled gloss finish. The Essence Venice Decor mimics the rich colour and pattern of traditional Moroccan tiles creating a stunning splashback in any kitchen and its rustic glaze lends it a handmade charm. Part of the Essence range of wall tiles.
Although produced using modern manufacturing methods, the Essence Venice is sometimes referred to as an encaustic tile. Before the advent of screen printing (and more recently digital printing) one technique of applying different colours to tiles was to use different coloured clays. The Victorians called these encaustic tiles which were originally known as inlaid tiles. It is common for patterned tiles to be conflated with encaustic tiles because they share many similar features including bright colours, repeating print patterns and are often considered rustic.
Located in Villarreal, Spain, Mainzu Ceramica has been manufacturing tiles since 1964. The company has diversified its range in recent years and introduced new production controls which has allowed it to maintain its lead in market innovation and design.
