Some might refer to them as Saltillo tiles, others as quarry tiles, still others as terra cotta tiles.  Names seem to be more of a whim of the marketing department than anything else.


The key is the first word in your title: unglazed.  Ask a salesperson for assistance if you don't find what you need.  The Lowes' staff seem to be fairly knowledgeable about the products they carry, although they probably won't have a clue if you tell them "I need a tile I can put in my oven to bake bread on."


Hope that helps.
