How It's Made

Each encaustic cement tile is handmade, one at a time, using a process that has been around for hundreds of years. They are unique in that they are not fired in kilns or are made of clay. Rather, these gems of the tile family are made by way of unique processes and materials – each tile is completely hand crafted of natural pigments and cements. The result is a beautiful, durable and sustainable product that will last the life of the project.


The process that brings those beautiful cement tiles to life appears to be rudimentary, but requires years of practice to perfect the art. In a nutshell, the process is as follows:

When inspected from the side, one can see the three distinct layers of the encaustic cement tile as described above. The top layer provides the colour and patterns as well as the surface properties while the other two layers provide strength, porosity and durability.
