Extrusion

Clay extrusion is a characteristic Tajimi method that has been used for many decades. In this process, clay is continuously extruded through a die, producing a tile section that is then cut to the desired length by wire. The process is partially automated and is also suitable for middle to large quantities. Extruded tiles, with their variations in colour and texture, have a particularly warm, hand-made look that is perceived as typical of Japanese aesthetics.
