Each of our artisan colors has its own unique finish. Featuring Matte, Satin Matte, Gloss, Engobe and Patine, each finish is unique to that specific color and cannot be changed. Matte finishes are more suitable for floor installations than others.

  • Matte: Matte, non-reflective surface
  • Satin: Matte surface with light sheen differences
  • Gloss: Shiny, semi-reflective sheen
  • Gloss w/ Engobe: White undercoating on our Recycled tile accentuates glossy colors.
  • Patine: An antiquing process applied to a gloss glaze to accentuate the crackled nature of the glaze.

  • Price Groups

    We price our tiles based on the color family and then by the size. For example, a color in Price Group A will have one price in the 4x4 size, but another price in the 12x12 size. Prices vary depending on the complexity of the glaze, the clay body, or the size. Not all colors are available in all sizes.


    Clay Body

    Our Recycled Clay Body is handmade of over 70% recycled content, including post-consumer waste up-cycled from curbside-recycled glass bottles, waste porcelain from toilets and bathtubs, and other manufacturer's pre-consumer waste, including granite dust and spent abrasives. We also have a White Clay Body.
