GRAY & BROWN TILES

Lava stone is a natural stone, that is imperfect in its texture and color, which gives it an interesting organic perception.
Furthermore, different shades of gray and brown color and different tactile characters you could reach through finishes can be used and put together giving visually interesting patterns and design.
Lava stone  processing methods leave substantially unchanged the stone surface, discovering different gray and brown tones, which give us a gray and brown lava stone palette

The lava stone tile enameling project is a customized process from cutting through hand pattern application to tile firing

In this residential project, the flooring tiles are the utmost tribute to Vietri ceramic and to its colors, a tradition that in the early 1960s inspired Gio Ponti to design his collection of white and blue tiles for the site-specific project of the Hotel Parco dei Principi in Sorrento.

Glazes can serve to color, decorate and waterproof the stone surface.
A ceramic glaze is an impervious layer of a vitreous substance which has been fused to a stone body through firing.
Kiln firing increases the resistance of glazed stone surfaces – a key factor in indoor and outdoor applications.

Glazing makes stone surfaces highly resistant and almost indestructible when exposed to water, chemicals, temperature fluctuations or UV light.
