Extrusion

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