    No, just make sure th Aga has been off for a few days, and use flexible adhesive.

    No.
    As ceramic tiles are fired to such a temperature the are fine!
    However make sure your adhesive is a flexible type for the movement with temperature and leave a gap from the AGA to the tiles so there is no conductive heat.
    A lot of glazes will craze with time/heat and this is a inherrant feature of ceramics.
    There are a few tile types that will not be suitable ie Space tiles from Fired Earth without using an epoxy adhesive.
    Make sure its off for a day before you start! And leave off for at least another day to set.
    Enjoy.

    The only reason I mention Space tiles - is through experience - they all fell off - as clean as a whistle - and had to refix them with epoxy adhesive.
    Thing is they looked just as good the second time!
