Terra Cotta Floor Tiles

One of the most durable floor tiles Americans have used for more than 100 years is the unglazed quarry tile.  Clay Squared represents Seneca, the largest producer of authentically handmade tiles in the United States since 1906. Seneca uses historic kilns and traditional techniques to the task of creating Seneca Handmold and Quarry Paver tiles. The kilns are often used to impart the timeless look to these remarkable tiles. At the left, craftsmen beat clay into wooden molds.

We carry two series, the Unglazed Unflashed Quarry Paver tiles are the most uniform group of unglazed tiles and are characterized by solid colors ranging from light to dark.

Also the Unglazed Ironspot Quarry Paver tiles, which has naturally occuring iron in the clay that comes to the surface during flashing and forms distinctive flecks which creates a beautiful range of textures.
