This lovely, simple little wall tile range from Claybrook sparks joy. Raku, named after the distinctive Japanese glazing technique it models itself on, demonstrates the bubbled, cracked surface of the process in its range of eight colours.
The beautiful colours range from sky blues and turqouises to the new peach and blush tones of Chiba and Sendai which are fresh additions to the collection. Their thin format is very on trend with their 65 by 200mm shape enabling a range of layout options.
The highly varied colour saturations arise due to the glaze’s reaction inside the kiln, giving an organic feel to the tiles. The vibrant colours have a modern, lively look that contrasts against the textured glaze and dark inky edges.
