Faience is the name given to glazed terracotta and terracotta is fired clay, which for construction purposes is normally either unglazed or has a transparent glaze. Due to its glaze, faience is a low maintenance, easy to clean material. It has very good thermal properties, is strong and durable and is fire resistant. Unlike some “modern” materials, faience has great longevity, as evidenced by the volume of historic buildings clad in the material, which makes it a highly sustainable choice. It can be produced in virtually any colour, finish and shape making it one of the most versatile and interesting building materials around; it offers the architect limitless freedom of expression. We specialise primarily in the sourcing and installing of hand produced faience.
