Ceramic tile begins as clay, usually comprised of shale, gypsum, and sand, and is forged into a material known as bisque. The bisque can be shaped into tiles and then is fired (usually in a kiln). As a rule, the higher the temperature, the stronger the tile will be. Ceramic tiles can be glazed, unglazed, plain, or decorated and can be installed for a variety of applications, though most commonly for walls and floors.
