Wall tiles have a fundamental role on Bordallo Pinheiro’s work. He created countless relief wall tiles, with different patterns, including pieces of naturalist inspiration, historic influence and recreations with Hispanic and Arab inspiration.
Raphael Bordallo Pinheiro produces a remarkable production of blue tiles for the interior and exterior coating treated as decorative elements of great importance.
Of the tiles with relief, either with patterns or figures, it is important to highlight the originality and quality of the glazes applied manually. This grasshopper tile is a representation of the naturalism by Raphael Bordallo Pinheiro, with an Art Nouveau inspiration, being most recently used as a box lid.
