Dancing on the sealing

If your tiles are crackle glazed, those cracks need some attention. Let’s celebrate the humble task of sealing.

The simple fact is, every crackle glazed tile needs sealing.

These glazes are deliberately finely cracked, a process that occurs as the tiles are cooling (we control the rate of cooling really carefully to produce specific effects). And these fine cracks need to be sealed to prevent water and dirt getting in.

Sealer should be applied before the tiles are cut and used. This is something a tiler will normally do, but it’s important to use a good sealant. We recommend our own branded crackle glaze sealer which we supply. Click here to view the product.
