Finally with the inkjet laser printer, it is possible reproducing anythinig on the tiles. Impossible is now possible.
3. HAND CRAFTED TERRACOTTA3D singular shapes
Sometimes it is not possible to use extrussion for making a particular shape (extrussion required a continuos section). In these cases, it is possible making terracotta tiles using different technologies (ceramic molding processing) or simple hand-crafting tools.
By hand-crafting we can produce exclusive shapes and making unique, singular and exclusive terracotta envelopes. In these kinds of projects, customizes subframing fixings are very often requireds. LOUVELIA provides full engineering service to attend these demands.
