SGC mulls P100 million investment for new ceramic tile kiln
!-- -- Louella Desiderio (The Philippine Star) - February 14, 2019 - 12:00am MANILA, Philippines Thai conglomerate Siam Cement Group (SCG) plans to invest P100 million in the Philippines this year for a new kiln to provide high quality ceramic tiles.
Prior to the unification of the Three Kingdoms, roof tile kilns
were characteristically equipped with a low wall or none at all.
The design was taken from a tile found on the Harefield Estate." This refers to the discovery of the medieval tile kilns
on the estate in 1911.
Despite the fact that no tile kilns
have been found, fabric analysis shows that there was most likely a central tilery in the southern central Weald, and interestingly tiles were 'swopped' across the channel between Boulogne, the principal base, and the English coast.
And, over the last ten years, archaeologists from Istanbul have excavated the remnants of of several tile kilns
. These have produced many tile fragments which provide valuable clues to the history of Iznik ware.
