Tile: St. Brigid’s Cross


Handmade ceramic tile

Each tile is handmade with love using our own techniques, which make them so unique.
The clay is pugged and rolled, then cut to size for each individual item. The tiles are dried and fired in the kiln. After the first firing we paint them with glazes, which give them colour, and we spend time developing and mixing our own ones. Afterwards the tiles are fired once again in the kiln.

Each piece has our signature on the reverse and comes with a short description of the symbol’s meaning and technique used.
Our wall tiles are easily hung, they have a recessed hole in the back which hook over a screw for secure hanging.
Because each piece is made by hand; expect slight differences in size, shape and glaze.

Celtic meaning of St. Brigid’s/ Brigit’s Cross
The presence of the Brigid’s cross in Ireland is likely far older than Christianity.
It is traditionally woven on St. Brigid’s Eve and placed in the home, usually over the door, to bless all who come in or go out, and to gain protection of the household from fire and disease.
