Polishing is a unique process in the making of Kyoto ceramic tiles. Craftsmen use different types of spatulas to relentlessly polish the surface of the clay. As they work, the only sounds audible in the workshop are the frictions made by the spatulas on the clay. This process helps to create a profound shine on the surface after the tile has been fired.
