THE DESIGN OF CUSTOM TILE FLOORS
Il Forno di Martino is a traditional tile manufacturer of hand-made and wood-fired terracotta tiles. Sitting on an argils capital of clay, they have been operating since the 1400s. After a long process of collecting, cleaning, drying, pressing, drying and finally wood-firing the tiles, a team of expert decorators sit in a circle and hand paint traditional patterns that make those wonderful virant floors that create those wonderful interiors originating from the Salerno region.
Terrathèque is the development of 4 new decoration techniques applied to my designs : maiolica (street angels), sgraffito (rosace), relief-work (bear skin), maiolica and cuts (famous). All tiles were made in their workshops or in the open-air.
