Porteous Tiles is a family business that has been making some of the world's most beautiful tiles for over 25 years. The tiles are made in Wellington, New Zealand. The first tiles produced by Porteous Tiles over 25 years ago were reproductions of some of the most iconic designs from the Art Nouveau and Arts and Crafts eras (1890-1920).
Tile production begins with a very high quality semi-porcelain clay chosen for its beautiful white colour and high firing suitability - this results in a very high quality tile that is strong, durable and vitreous. Colour is key with Porteous Tiles.
There is nothing mass-produced or ordinary here.
Porteous Tiles glazes are produced in small batches and tested to ensure quality and consistency. Tiles are individually made using hand made moulds and are all hand painted. After firing at high temperature, tiles are hand sorted to ensure only the best tiles are sent out to customers. The final product is a tile of exceptionally high quality, with a beautiful lively individuality, which effects that fact that they have been produced by hand, by people who love what they do

Please understand, this isn't an "Uncle Bob" woodshop. You know "Uncle Bob"... if you show him a picture, he can build anything, sort of. Though the drawers may stick and the top might crack, it looks just like the picture! We don't work day jobs and putter in the shop at night. We are CRAFTSMEN, Professional furniture makers. We log, saw, kiln dry and process OUR OWN QUARTERSAWN OAK, from our "Tree Farm" in the heart of Arkansas' Ozark Mountains. Then we individually handmake each piece of furniture with care and attention to detail.
We do one thing, as good as any, and better than most...... that is, design and hand craft some of the finest and most innovative Arts & Crafts / Mission Furniture available today.
We guarantee our work to exceed your highest expectations, PERIOD.
Our finish is SECOND TO NONE... IT IS DEEP, RICH, AND LUXURIOUS.
We wet every part, and the finished piece, with hot water many times, and sand them, before staining. This raises the grain several times, and guarantees the finish will still be as elegant in 100 years as it is now....
We finish all of our work using Water Soluble Aniline Dyes for a crystal clear, deep color. Aniline dyes are known for their deep rich color, absolute clarity, and colorfastness. These dyes are hard to master, and almost never used commercially. Between each coat of the stain, sealer, glaze, and multiple coats of lacquer, we sand the piece with 320 grit for a FINISH THAT IS AS WONDERFUL TO FEEL AS IT IS TO SEE. FINALLY, We HAND RUB the entire piece with rubbing lubricant and FINE Scotchbrite pads for a JADE SMOOTH FINISH.
THE BULK OF OUR WORK FOR THE PAST 20 YEARS, HAS BEEN PUT IN WITH ANTIQUE COLLECTIONS. OUR FINISH BLENDS SEAMLESSLY WITH EXISTING ANTIQUES. AS MUCH AS OUR FINISH BLENDS WITH ANTIQUES, IT IS A DURABLE, MODERN FINISH. WE USE THE FINEST VINYL SEALER AND WATER RESISTANT LACQUER.
IT IS HIGHLY ALCOHOL AND WATER RESISTANT.
