Crazed Tiles, Hexagonal

192.8 in

A seamless tile texture with crazing tile arranged in a hexagonal pattern. The image represents a physical area of 4896 x 4240 mm (192.8 x 166.9 inches) in total, with each individual tile measuring approximately 400 x 100 mm. The joints are filled with mortar and are 8 mm (0.3 inches) in width.

Crazing tile sourced from tenement stairwell in Glasgow. Crazing is a phenomenon that naturally occurs during the manufacturing process of a ceramic or porcelain tile. When a tile is fired in a kiln, the material bonds with the glaze layer, and the fluctuations in temperature cause subtle, fine cracks to appear on the tile surface.

This texture uses hexagonal tiling. This hexagonal pattern contains regular hexagon shapes with each row offset in order to interlink with one another. It is one of the three regular tilings of the Euclidean plane and is a significant structure in nature.

This image is seamless, meaning it can be tiled repeatedly for use in architectural drawings and 3D models. It can be used as a SketchUp texture, Revit material or imported into Photoshop for use in 2D illustrations.
