Congratulations on finding these amazing tiles and ceramics for the home. Here's some information you should know before you use them.


Tiles: How did you do that?


The Bay Area is not at risk for scurvy.  Residents do, however, litter their orange peels - freaking everywhere.  I take the pictures and the tiles are printed using a dye sublimation process.

 Magical, really.

Tile Installation


The irony of Abrasive Arts – for tile installation, I recommend using an unsanded grout. Have your tile setter mask off the tile surface using paper and a low-tack tape. Check to make sure the tape will not scratch the tile surface.

The masking will protect the tile surface during installation. After installation, clean the tiles with a non-abrasive cleanser and a soft cloth.

The image on the photo tiles is permanent, but can be scratched with a sharp object like scissors, knives and screwdrivers.

Take Care of Your Ceramics

While the image on the tile is permanent, they will fade in direct sunlight. They can be used outside, but sunlight will cause them to fade over time.

Both the white clay and porcelain ceramics will last longer if you hand wash them.  They are, however, microwave, dishwasher, and oven safe.  All glazes are lead-free.

The tiles can be used in a wet environment, but should be kept clean to avoid stains. 



Sorry, I cannot accept returns at this time. But I hear they make great re-gifts.
