A high relief tile is made of flat ceramic background and elevated pattern. Production of relief tile is not easy. It requires skillful artisan to apply paint by the way of pouring it on the surface. Each tile is handmade individually. That process take time even for the best tile maker and length of time depends largely on complexity of the design. Mexican relief tiles are in high demand as they are very decorative. Mostly they are used in large house foyers on stair risers, kitchen backsplash and bathroom walls. Sometimes you can see the high relief tile installed on patios and verandas as well as expensive hotels decorating lobby, stairs and relief tile bar counters.
