Tegula specializes in restoration of ceramic tiles, mosaics, pottery, stoneware, porcelain and related materials. Tegula also makes traditional tiles to size, as well as reproductions of its own designs...
... To restore a ceramic article means to bring the object as back to its original condition. Shards are cleaned and glued, gaps filled and retouched. All this with the right ethic and respect for the specific history of the object. Tegula works with contemporary and responsible materials, which are of course compatible with the material of the object to be restored. We restore for individuals, public buildings, antique shops and museums. Firstly, tiles and mosaics, but equally Ceramic Art and use well. Tiles to size In our artisan workshop we process manually clay to finished tiles. We reproduce tiles that are no longer available in the market, but are equally modern tiles to your own taste and design. In the reproduction of antique tiles we integrate as much as possible craftmanship in our contemporary creative process. After slow drying "air" the biscuit tiles are fired at 1060 or 1180 °, depending on the desired application. A fire glaze gives the tile its final views. All of our ceramic tiles are to be protected from frost and baked on stoneware temperature, such as those to be ordered explicitly for this purpose. Since the tiles are hand-made home-made molds, add color nuances, small size differences and other imperfections your tiles unique character, unlike mass-produced and therefore rather sterile tiles. The delivery time is always at least six weeks - depending on the drying of the tiles - and can be longer depending on the size of the order. The tiles are delivered to the customer. All our tiles are made on request and on order. In interiors or facades of historic houses are often tiles that obtain no longer commercially. These can be reproduced by Tegula on request. In order to make the most precise possible copy is always required a sample tile to make dyes and clay studies. Tiles to size we make up for individuals as well as architects and contractors.
