Looking to add a daring pop of color to your space? Then drop into one of our boldest blues-- Adriatic Sea.

Glassy in finish, but ceramic in body, Adriatic Sea's color variation gives dimension to this otherwise white space. 

Pro Tip: Being a handmade product, variation is to be expected, but not always guaranteed. Adriatic Sea is a higher variation glaze (V3). We typically see color highs, lows, or a mix of both along with glaze pooling and loose crazing (aka crackle). This article shows a nice range of what to expect if you choose the Adriatic Sea glaze.

Pro Tip: If you're going with a gloss finish glaze like Adriatic Sea on the floor, be conscious about the tile size you choose. We recommend going with shapes and sizes no bigger than your foot. We also love the look of larger grout spacing, like the Mini Stars and Crosses directly above!
