The floors in our house are laid with hand-made clay tiles. The tiles were put in rows to dry in the sun after making them and critters, both animal and human walked across them and left their imprint for all time.
For instance this tile in our main living area has heel prints in it:We have several tiles with vulture prints in them: And a few have cat and dog prints: The tiles, like the concrete in the house itself, keep a lot of moisture in them for the first year resulting in a battle with constant mold and mildew in the house. Now that we’ve been in the house three plus years only small touch ups of the sealer and a wash with a special cleaner are required to keep up the tiles and mystery molds have pretty much disappeared.
I like the differentness of our pisos and every day I walk through my little house in Panama they are beneath my feet.
