Where can I use Trikeenan tiles?

Everywhere! Use them on walls, counters, and floors in kitchens, bathrooms, entrances, and laundry rooms. Trikeenan tiles are made from high-fired stoneware. Thus, they are extremely dense, durable, and freeze-thaw resistant. They can be used in pools, spas and fountains. Use them to embellish a custom-built barbeque, or insert them as accents in garden stepping- stones. Let your imagine run wild! And don’t forget your fireplace surround, fire pit or hearth. After all, they’ve been fired to 2180 degrees.

I’ve narrowed my selection down to three choices. Can you send samples to me?

How do I know how intensely any particular glaze colour will range?

Our glazes are assigned a rating between 1 and 5, depending upon their depth of range. For example, Corinthian Leather, rated 3, is described as follows: “At its base is a rich reddish-brown with purple iridescent hues. As the glaze gets thicker a sunburst of iron red starts to emerge until the majority of the surface is covered with flecks of iron red, gold, and bronze. The glaze has a slight metallic finish and can show hand-dipped lines. Golden bronze edging can appear along the sides of the tile.” These ratings and descriptions are found under each glaze colour.

What makes Trikeenan tile unique?

That’s a great question! To begin with, Trikeenan tiles are “hand made.” Translated, that means individual tiles will have subtle variations. You may notice it in the way the edges and corners feel. Or, you may see it in the slight shape variations because of the way they snapped when they were cracked apart. Trikeenan tiles are also made from a “stoneware” clay body. This means that the tiles are fired to a high temperature and are extremely dense, with low porosity. Therefore they can be used anywhere you may dream of installing tile – indoors or out. Best of all, you will see it in the depth of range found in Trikeenan’s 52+ glazes. The individual characteristics of hand dipping, hand spraying and tile placement in our electric and gas kilns can produce extraordinary variations within one colour.
