About Us
Hunter Art and Tile Studio is a family workshop established in 1982. There is a traditional Scottish look to our hand-painted tiles with an influence of Glasgow Art Nouveau and the much loved Scottish "Wally Close" style of tiling. In addition to online shopping you are welcome to visit our studio shop to buy in person, or to discuss the possibilities of commissioned tiles.

Techniques

This workshop specialises in the tube-line process, which is among the most skill-intensive of all tile and pottery painting techniques.

Beginning with a selected unglazed "biscuit" tile, using a pencil or charcoal sketch as a guide, we use an 'icing bag' tool to slip-trail precise outlines of clay onto the tile.

Coloured glazes and detailed artwork are added before the tile is fired. The method is time-consuming but the finished tiles have a richness of colour and detail unchallenged by cheaper processes.
