product description + credits

* this product comes in 60 pieces per box and makes up 9.29 pieces per square feet
drawing on the italian history of renaissance grottos that were often decorated with sea shells, rocks, and semi-precious stone, the rocaille tile is cristina celestino’s modern interpretation of these evocative surfaces. 

the undulating concave and convex ceramic surface of the shell casting once installed on a surface creates a subtle play of shadow and light.

about this collection

Non-vitreous decorative ceramic wall tiles, which are hand formed, and fired. 

Glazed wall tiles are non-vitreous ceramic tiles intended for interior use, and are not required nor expected to withstand excessive impact or exposure to freeze/thaw cycling. Tiles in this category are not intended for use on floors.


Color and Texture Variation

  • Fornace Brioni Rocaille tiles are rated V2 / T1 

Due to the handmade craftsmanship of many of our tiles and the variety of materials used, there are degrees of variation in our tiles’ color, shade and texture. These differences are more pronounced in certain types of tiles than others, especially in tiles from separate production lots, or “batches”.

Wet Area Application 

The Fornace Brioni Rocaille collection can only be installed as backsplashes or in showers with application of a waterproofing, penetrating sealer like Miracle Sealants 511 Porous Plus. 

When installing, make sure these specific waterproofing precautions are taken:

  • A waterproofing, penetrating sealer (Miracle Sealant 511 Porous Plus) is used to seal the tile surface and grouted lines - before and after grouting.
  • Single coat re-application of the penetrating sealant is required once a year in shower applications due to the continuous exposure to water.
  • Rocaille tiles are not recommended for steam shower use.
