Autumn is here!

Right on cue it's suddenly Autumn here in Portland. Windy and rainy and then a blast of sunshine just when you'd given up on it! Here's a few projects moving through the factory that seem to mirror the weather -

Pretty leaves blowing around these 4x4's -

These were custom made for a client, they're getting ready to be fired and then glazed.

Some Autumn harvest vegetables in our Duochrome tone on tone hand painting -

And that blast of sunshine! Some Intaglio bubbles in a bright custom green -
Happy Autumn!

Introducing Filigree

The Filigree Series uses an intricate, delicate design to create an overall repeating pattern. As its name suggests it calls to mind delicate lacy metal work with it's precise clean lines.

There are 4 patterns available in a 6x6 format. 

Glazes pool in the lower areas of the design and break on the high points, allowing the patterns to show beautifully in any of our glazes.

Filigree A in C52 & C611

 Filigree B in W1 & W92

Filigree C in C600 & W36

Filigree D in C609  & W61

The Filigree patterns repeat to create an intricate surface embellishment for a luxurious look. Visit a dealer near you to see these beautiful tiles in person or stop by our Portland showroom. We look forward to seeing you!
