When clients comes to ask me for a special job it is challenging to explain them the possibilities and to really get their idea.
In the studio I have a lot of samples of different glazes and types of clay. Sometimes a drawing or a computer design will be made before staring the ceramic process.
The next pictures show some of the many commissions I have realized
In Castilla Leon owners of tourist cottage or hotels are obliged to put a tile with a logotype on the wall. The drawing and the colors of this tile is standard. To give them a small personal touch I make them with a relief.
The tiles are made out of stoneware clay so they will withstand the strong winters of this part of Spain.
Other provinces or for other types of apartments the owner sometimes needs a different model.
Besides making ceramic tiles I carry out tiles made out of perspex with vinyl.
I have send tiles all over Spain.
Together with the mayor of La Losa I designed a special tile for a special square.
The tile is made out of stoneware clay to protect the tile from frost.
The letters are pressed in with a mold made with a CNC cutter and colored with glaze.
