we want this for our kitchen and look for beautiful handmade tiles in the north of germany and in poland. we already found two giant beautiful traditional tiles in peru and they made the beginning on our kitchen wall.
An idea to fix a broken tile area. Don't tear out the wall of tile, make light of it! Caulk the broken/missing tile to waterproof, then add an air fern (kitchen backsplash) or a fake plant (shower or tub area).
