Franche-Comté is a region in eastern France, on the border with Switzerland.  Largely rural, villages are surrounded by fields of flowers, where their bright colors mirror the roof tops of historic stone homes nestled against the mountainside. The color of these roof tops - or tuiles - are made from the indigenous clay of this region.  Fired in wood-burning kilns with temperatures closer to 1200 degrees Celsius - the resulting colors of this reclaimed terra cotta tile lot are dazzling - like a field of poppy flowers.  From coral and blush to terra cotta red, we were lucky to salvage this floor from this region - a beautiful reminder of the beauty that exists in Franche-Comté.
