William De Morgan Barn Owls and Scrolls

William De Morgan did not invent lustre tiles, but he might as well have. He reinvented them newer and better than any that came before. The first red lustre tiles were made at Merton Abbey and he perfected them during his Fulham period, where he introduced other colors.

Installing and Caring for Your Tile

These tiles are suitable for interior use on walls, backsplashes, showers, and fireplace surrounds. They won't stand up to being a counter tile. Well, the tile will but the finish probably won't stay nice. If used in a shower or behind a sink, you will want to seal it well. Your installer will know about this. I will send you an information sheet when I ship your tile.

Laying out your tile before you start installing will make things go faster and lessen the drama if you want to keep to a pattern. Be sure to use unsanded grout when installing your tile. The tile is tough but sanded grout will put infinitely small scratches in your seal which will make the finish different from what you started with. This isn't as noticeable on tumbled as on ceramic tile, but can happen. You can clean your tiles with any household non-abrasive cleaner and a soft cloth or sponge.
