Ceramic Tile

All ceramic tile from Lewellen Studio are created using the single-fire method. Whether single or mutiple layered, all tiles are fired to cone five ( 2,185 degrees fahrenheit ). The clay body is usually porcelain or white stoneware, lead free glazes, and only use oxidation firing in both gas and electric kilns.
