I was disappointed
I loved the look of this tile on the website, but when the sample came I was disappointed. From a distance/ on the site it has the appearance of a crackle glaze and a hand made tile with lovely variation in the tile. However when you see it in the flesh, it sort of looks like the colours have been printed onto the tile digitally - like it's a photocopy of a beautiful tile. Maybe that wouldn't be a problem, but it seems like this "photocopy" has been enlarged and a bit of the quality lost, so it has a slightly disconcerting blurred look to it, which make make my eyes feel like they are going funny. I'm pretty certain the crackle isn't real, but either printed or etched onto the tile - it doesn't reflect the light at odd angles. For me all these little things add up to a tile that looks a bit tacky. Disappointing, because I wanted to love it. Maybe it would look ok on the wall, but it didn't stand up to my scrutiny.

Beautiful tile for kitchen and bathroom
Rich colour and varied tones give added interest. Colour variability also makes it easier to match to other colours in the room. Nice size tile. Looks great in both kitchen and bathroom.
