Introducing our new Agrarian Handpainted Collection

Posted by: Kali • Jun 7

Introducing our new Agrarian Handpainted Collection

We looked high and low to inspire our next Handpainted Collection. But as fate would have it, our search brought us right back home. Looking to the agricultural landscape that surrounds our Aromas, California factory, the Agrarian Collection pays homage to the place that makes our story possible.

The eight new Handpainted patterns and three color motifs are inspired by the geometric crop layouts found in aerial photography. With endless layout possibilities, the Agrarian Collection gives you the freedom to share whatever story you want to tell. Mix and match to create a unique tile landscape, or choose a single pattern to create a striking feature installation. 

Every single one of our Agrarian patterns are skillfully painted by hand in our Aromas, California factory. The Agrarian Collection features large pools of hand-painted glaze, creating a glaze trail made by the tip of the bottle during the painting process. Glaze trailing, or what we like to call the signature of a painter, is the true mark of handpainted tile. 

Eight patterns, infinite possibilities
How do you do Agrarian? Impactful on their own or blended into a dynamic composition, these versatile patterns and color motifs offer endless ways to express yourself. We're sharing our new patterns, along with design inspiration below, but if you'd like more, head to our Pinterest Board

You can see all eight patterns and the three available motifs (Cool, Warm and White) below: 

Arable: 
Whether you see them as colorful crop circles, whimsical radars, or playful pie charts, Arable adds a fun twist to the Agrarian Collection. The best part? No two circles are exactly alike.

Harvest: 
Harvest’s half-moon shapes create a satisfyingly minimalistic landscape. Thanks to its contrasting colors, Harvest has an alluring depth that will never fall flat.

Ground Harvest’s playful half-moon shapes with rustic textures and earthy hues for a warm and inviting space.

Grove: 
There’s something oh-so-satisfying about rows and rows of neatly planted crops. It’s also what inspired Grove. Arrange it so that the lines converge into a radiating diamond or make them into dynamic diagonals.

Want to make a statement underfoot? Our Agrarian patterns make for unforgettable floor tile.

Pivot:
Pivot proves that less is more. Tilted grooves add instant variation to these deceptively simple circles, trading polka dots for a pattern that invites a second glance.

Maze:
Matte hues and muted tones give Maze’s radar-like pattern an earthy quality. Arrange these concentric circles so that the diagonal grooves are pointing in different directions for a dynamic and improvised look.

Try a blend of these circular patterns for a look that's all your own:

Fallow:
Each tile features a quarter of a circle, giving you the freedom to construct or deconstruct the pattern in any way you choose. Arrange it to make full circles, semicircles, four quadrants, or a combination of all three.

Go for half circles, as shown in the three motifs below: 

This half circle pattern would make for both a compelling wall or floor installation:

Grange:
A fresh take on the classic parquet pattern, Grange looks right at home in everything from retro-chic to modern spaces. Contrasting colors in muted tones add extra depth and dimension.

Terrain:
Texture, shape, and color converge ever-so-subtly in Terrain. Featuring a semicircle balanced with concentric grooves, the pattern creates an intriguing contrast that feels both familiar and futuristic.

Sometimes all you need is White Motif to work wonders in a space. Neutral shades and bold lines infuse it with extra depth and dimension.
