We make real ceramic miniature tiles, floors, walls for miniature enthusiasts in 1 inch scale (1:12).
Robert Off made this roombox showing the studio of the Dutsch painter Vermeer.
We contributed the floor tiles, which we made according to his wishes.
But let us Robert Off describe his work himself:
This box is my vision of what his Delft studio may have looked like in 1650. Not much is known about Vermeer and only 34 works attributed to him are known to exist today. It is also theorized by a number of scholars that he used a mechanical optical device known as a camera obscure, a device similar to a pin hole camera with a projector lens, to assist him in creating the correct perspective of the scene.
On the left you can see the complex floor layout. It is turned 25° to the right angle. Subsequently every border tiles was different from the other. Hence we had a lot of work making the border tiles, keeping them in the right order and remember the right colour of each tile thoughout the production processs. After the firing we glued the border tiles on the layoutpaper in order to have them save of the destinated place. Robert got all other tiles, glued them on the paper and did the finishing work.
We thank Robert so much for having had the chance to contribute our work to your historic roombox!

I revamp miniature furniture by stripping down, sanding, painting, staining, and adding personal flair to each piece. the added flair to this Kitchen cupboard piece
is the beautiful porcelain tile color # 16150 (blue with a touch of green) that I have individually placed as the countertop.

I have used color # 17050 (light Rose) as my 1:12 dollhouse bathroom backsplash behind the bathtub. It goes beautifully with the style and color of my pinkish walls and black and white tile floor. I have individually placed all the tiles into place using the graph paper that Kruger tiles provides

In the future we will concentrate our programm on a large variety of one colour single tiles (examples see March) and custom made floors and walls.
Hence we browsed through our stock and sorted out designs which our customers rarely ask for. It was not easy to sort them out as put so much engery and love into making them.
The relief tiles shown above belong to the ones we will not make any more.

All of these tiles are covered with a traditional very lively glaze. In the long run they get a few cracks on the surface which make them look very like the ancient full size tiles.
top left (orange brown): 29220, middle (yellow): 24220, right (brown) 29300
By the way: the yellow tiles a the very right are the ones applied at the bathroom shown at the January issue below.
Katy made contemporary kitchen with a cool and crisp look. Following this styl she had chosen one color tiles for the backspash in a bluegreen (no 26200). Instead of placing the tiles on top of each other Katy placed them like railway tiles. By doing so emphasized the horizontal lines of the backsplash giving the arrangement a certain tension. We like Katy´s well balanced modern kitchen very much!
In old times a lot of bathrooms are tiled only around the buthtub and the shower area. The owner of this miniature bathroom (thank you for your permission to show the pictures!) has chosen a traditonal highly glossy glaze in a warm yellow. The slight variation in tile color gives the tiled area a lively look and supports the cosy athmosphere of this bath.
