Hanging Tiles on a Wall

Recommended Posts

Tiles are made with flat backs.  Did not want to grove or notch them; was afraid of warp during drying.  Wanted them flat.  Installation is 13 tiles as “Tree of life”.  Will be roughly 5’x4’.  Weigh about 5#.

No more posts from artists but just in case still looking.

At the design phase of idea/brief follow through on "paper" your project right through to installation.

This will demand you tackle unforseen issues like...how willl this 60metre elephant made of clay be suspended from the ceiling.....

Or in your case your tiles.

Then the construction of the artwork will be created around that knowledge.

Good luck.

If you were to answer Neil's questions he could pount you in an appropriate direvtion.

Twenty square feet of 1/2" tile, perhaps 120 lbs.; be sure to catch a few wall studs, square on, with resilient fasteners (brittle/hard fasteners - e.g. drywall screws - shear failure is snap; better to bend a bit).
