26 Raise d P at te r n D e c ora ti v e T i le Raised pattern decoratives are hand-pressed tiles that have either a raised outline of the pattern or an embossed pattern. A press is used so the patterns are more consistent in appearance than relief tiles. The raised patterns usually have a low background and the design is “raised”, but all raised areas are the same height, unlike our relief tile which can have varied heights and depths. The raised clay outline keeps the different glaze colors form running together during the kiln firing process. The Moors and Spain originated this technique called “cuenca” Many of the Arts & Crafts decorative tiles produced in California in the 1920’s and the 1940’s were made in the cuenca technique. The cuenca technique allows us to use the same glazes we use in our field tiles and moldings. Colors must be chosen from either Debris series or Vitrail series for raised decoratives. The detail of the raised pattern designs is accentuated by wash and rubbed glazes. Not all raised tiles are offered in rubbed. A few designs are produced with a debossed method. The design is sunken into the clay. The glaze pools into these sunken areas. The raised pattern decoratives may vary slightly in size and color from the plain field tiles.
