Handmold Tile is authentic hand-formed clay tile characterized by irregular edges, corners and surface variations. Rich tones and inviting textures enhance both traditional and contemporary interiors. If you love the quality of old historic tile, you’ll love Handmold.
Using a special blend of local clays, wooden molds, and techniques developed hundreds of years ago, Seneca Tiles offers its Handmold series. While soft, moldable clay, individually batched glazes, and natural oxides are the ingredients of the tiles, the “magic” that is Seneca Handmold is in the human hand. Skilled craftsmen vigorously beat handfuls of plastic clay into shallow wooden molds. Excess clay is then scraped from the top of the mold. A wooden drying board is placed over the mold; together they are carefully inverted; the mold is lifted, and a tile falls free. “Handmade”.
This is the essence of Seneca Handmold – the labor intensive, slow, skilled process of forming tiles one at a time that sets this product apart from other tiles. This age-old process is completed by drying the tile, applying one of many glazes and, finally, firing under carefully controlled conditions.
