Bread and Butter Tiles
Victoria, B.C., Canada
Rosemary and Geoff Murray are the makers of handmade ceramic tiles used for giftware, gardens, furniture and architectural tiles including kitchen, bathroom and fireplace tiles.
Our vision is to create beautiful and functional tiles thoughtfully, with integrity, considering the needs of our clients, and the location of the tiles.
B&B tiles are completely handmade. The clay comes from quarries in Alberta, B.C. and Washington State, U.S.A. The clay is rolled, cut, carved, pressed, trimmed, and glazed by hand. Glazes are made from various powdered materials then weighed, mixed, sieved, and applied in a variety of techniques. The tiles are then fired in an electric kiln to cone 1 (1154°C) creating a vitreous earthenware that is functional and durable.
These tiles are made with joy and are a reflection of our relationship with the world in which we live.
