I have some decorative tiles I would like to frame and hang on my walls but am trying to find the best way to frame them. Has anyone done something similar before? I'm thinking of using thin a thin acrylic square glued to the back of the tile which will then be glued to the matboard held in the frame. My biggest unknown is currently how to secure the backing so it doesn't fall out. Any tips??
I’m making some decorative ceramic tiles that are about 16”x16” and 1/2” thick, and was wondering how people have hung similar types of work in the past into walls. One option I’m thinking of is attaching (glue?) border pieces of acrylic to the back outside and then drilling holes through that and attaching wire. Another option is to attach wire straight to the ceramic back using ceramic add on tab loop things, or put holes on the outside border of the back and attach wire through that. I am worried that there isn’t enough thickness to my pieces to support them though if I go this route. I could also skip wire entirely and just put in a recess where a hook can be hung onto the piece, but again worried about the structural integrity of the piece with how thin it is. Any other thoughts/options?
From the album: tile and architectural ceramicsAfter years of therapy and calling itself by other names, this glaze proudly calls itself Avocad. Ignore those 70s flashbacks! it is reviving itself as a popular accent color and looks gorgeous by itself and with other tones and materials . this is a small layout to size for a fireplace project. 6 X 6 field tile, L trim and 3 inch decos.
