A large frog leaping out from your shower wall at body height is probably not a good idea. Obviously porous tiles are not good for wet areas. So long as the tile is vitreous - has been fired to maturity such that the crystalline structure is unified - the tile or glaze is OK however the joints between the tiles will need to be sealed. Again the best bet here is a high fired stoneware tile with a dependable glaze. Flooring presents other challenges and opportunities. Clearly floor tiles must be durable so high fire stoneware is the best choice. Any kind of relief is not advised as uneven surfaces can be difficult to walk on especially for the aged.

Such a cermic tile would not be suitable for certain applications. For example if you intend to use the tile for a backsplash counter top or tabletop you will need a very durable tile that will hold up to frequent cleaning and in the case of a countertop or tabletop some hard use too. Stoneware clays are the most suitable for this sort of use. Stoneware is normally fired to about cone 6 (around 2200 degrees F) and is very strong. But in your inquiry dont stop with what kind of clay the tiles are made from. Glazes vary enormously and even so-called food-safe glazes can leach out chemicals stain and lose their color.

Even a glaze said to be food-safe often is not. John Hesselberth and Ron Roy in their book Mastering Cone 6 Glazes demonstrate this by placing a lemon wedge on a food-safe glazed piece of ceramics. Within hours the glaze is discolored from leaching out of the chemicals. Unfortunately the food-safeness of a glazed or handpainted ceramic tile is difficult to determine unless you can speak with the maker because of the fact that many glazes said to be food-safe are not. Which is one of the great advantages of handmade tiles - the ceramic artist can tell you if it is food-safe.
