Glacé: small tiles with constantly changing color shades

A blend of skill and technology is reflected in an extremely sophisticated range of small size products that reinterpret antique tiles from the ceramic tradition.

The art of craftsmanship becomes trendy, celebrating the excellence of a high-tech material with outstanding performance, in colorful tiles, structured surfaces and glossy and matt “raw” finishes.

Ragno Ceramiche’s Glacé wall covering is available in brick tile size 7.5×20 cm, in 6 plain tiles in natural colors and the respective three-dimensional structures.
Along the sides of the Glacé tiles and in tiny parts of their surfaces there are touches of a clay color that give the impression of gaps in the glaze, a distinctive feature of handmade materials.

The inspiration for Glacé comes from craft techniques that involve drawing the body mix through dies during production. In this process, any dirt on the tools creates tiny superficial cuts, which are then covered by the glaze. The resulting ceramic product has a changeable shiny surface with great tactile appeal, telling a story rich in experience and manual skill.

The technical properties of stoneware are combined with a striking, contemporary aesthetic impact, with three-dimensional decoration that bestows depth and richness of color on interior design schemes. The striped Rayé 3D structure has furrows of varying width and depth to create a “barcode” look, with an alternation of glossy and matt glazes.

Installed either vertical or horizontal, the small Glacé tiles are suitable for covering whole walls, furnishings and architectural features, or for creating boiserie panels and decorative motifs, alternating smooth plain tiles and relief structures or just experimenting with the color assortment in a mixture of coordinated tones and shades.
