Norton Priory Museum & Garden has a fantastic collection of medieval tiles that cover almost all the different types produced at the time.
Inlay tiles are made by pressing a wooden stamp or hand cutting a design into the wet clay and then filling the resultant impression with a light coloured clay slip. Once the clay slip has dried enough, a tool is used to scrape off the excess slip which then leaves behind a striking two colour design. The designs would then be further enhanced by using different coloured glazes. I have used wildlife/bees for the design of my tiles.
