17 Cu er d a S eca Cuerda Seca is a Spanish term for wax resist handpainted decorative tiles. The wax line or dry cord keeps the glazes from running together during kiln firing. Once the outline is applied to the tile, the glaze is eye dropped in each separate area with a ceramic syringe. During firing the glazes melt and run up against the wax barrier creating a subtle texture. Most of the time the outline is done with black wax. A clear wax line which exposes the color of the tile body is available as a custom request. Almost all our Cuerda Seca tiles are produced on our Debris body but clear line can be very attractive on our white body Vitrail Series. The original idea for the Cuerda Seca technique came from Persia to Spain were it was refined then from Spain to California were it has been further refined to produce our tiles. Custom Cuerda Seca designs can be made at your request. For more information please visit our website at www.fireclaytile.com.
