The first European use of ceramics took place in the year 711 in Spain during the invasion of the Muslims. The ceramic pieces built by the Spanish were used for structural design such as un-glazed bricks, roofing tiles, water channels and eaves. During the mid-evil times Spain used ceramics for tile, decorations, and for construction as well. Other pieces created during that specific time area in the country of Spain were earthenware utilitarian pieces. All of the churches and palaces in Spain during this era were filled with beautifully created artisan tile that added a natural, sensual look to all buildings they were placed in. After years of creating beautiful ceramic tiles and art decor, Spain started shipping their ceramic products to the Mediterranean and other countries around the world.
