Hey, I'm Sofiia, and recently I've become obsessed with the idea of creating handmade clay tile.
Working with clay brings my soul peace and balance. I feel myself harmoniously stretching the clay and molding ceramic tile. The idea that it will make someone’s home bright, stylish and extraordinary inspires me incredibly. After all, everyone is pleased to hear compliments to their own house.
For a long time I was afraid to tell my friends and family about my project. But when I finally opened my plan to them, I received a line of orders for tiles of different shapes and colors for their apartments and houses. Their support helped me to believe that my idea is in demand with others. That people are not enough to have ordinary boring tiles from the store. Everyone wants to have crafty and unique house decoration,that reflects their inner world.
The creation of ceramic tiles is an unlimited field for creativity. Variations of shapes, colors, combinations of decors, engravings and stucco, the technique of creating tiles is so much that I desire to sit down in the workshop and create beauty.
For now, I have a business and marketing plan for my startup and a huge desire to bring it to life. But I do not have one of the most important things – a kiln for roasting my ceramics. To make clay tiles strong and shiny, it needto be burnedat a temperature of 1200°C for about 8 hours in a special muffle kiln.
This equipment is expensive. Part of the amount I have accumulated from my own savings, but I can not do without your help. Please, help to make the dream of my own creative tile production come true.
