Inquiring Minds Want to Know

As a somewhat inquisitive person by nature, I happen to question a lot. I hate the word no, because there is always a solution.

Anyway, I love tile and I always want to learn more. Where did ceramic tile originate? Why? Where does the odd word ’tile’ come from? What are the earliest examples of historic tile and what did it look like?

For any of you who care about the nuts and bolts of tile and want to see some incredible historic tile designs, check out this amazing article A Condensed Ceramic Tile History from my new favorite site, DesignBoom.com

Oh DesignBoom, I can already anticipate the hours we will spend together. For good or for bad, I am intrigued (and a little smarter after my history of ceramic tile lesson. xoxo)
