Artistic tile - Armenian artistic tiles since 1922

- Floral tiles, birds, peacocks and tree - Tell A Friend

The tradition of making artistic tile started with my grandfather when in 1922 he and a group of talented artisans came over to Jerusalem from Kutahia, Turkey, to work on renovating the artistic tiles of the Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem, which were in disrepair. Along with his partner, he set up a ceramic studio producing intricate and elegant artistic tile and pottery wares in Jerusalem.

This artistic tile mural is made up of 16 loose tiles - 4 central tiles, 8 borders, and 4 corners.

It is 18 x 18 inches, and because the design is modular, it can be expanded to any size (multiples of 6 inches).

 

 

 

 

 

3 generations of Armenian artistic tile

Today, we still make our artistic tiles in the same way as our elders did - colors, glazes, formulas, painting - in keeping with our family tradition. All our tiles are painted by us in our ceramics studio located in Jerusalem, where we have our kilns and workshop.
