Looking for something no one else has? Clay Decor now offers one-of-a-kind works of art by Clay Decor artist, A.M. Foulke. These Crystal Creations are designs hand-sculpted into clay, then filled with melted glass. We can use our existing designs and a rainbow of glass colors, or create a completely new design to any dimension (individual pieces not to exceed 17 x 21 inches). Explore the possibilities below!
"King of the Yard" for the Everson Museum Robineau Gallery exhibit Aug. 30-Jan 4. Ceramic and melted glass with Gloss White glaze 24 x 21
We at Clay Decor are currently obsessed with using glass in our ceramics. The latest in that quest is our most popular design, Concordia (used with the new acanthus leaf center). More designs to come, as 3 new 6x6-inch designs will be released by the end of June. Crystal Concordia is a single large ceramic tile (12x16 inches) with fired glass inlaid into the design. The artist created a reverse-mold, hand-presses the design, glazes the tile, then hand-fills the design with crushed glass in colors custom to each client. Here are just a few examples:
The glazes that work with glass are: Gloss White, Buttercream, Moonlight, and Candlelight. Glass colors are a rainbow of options--samples can be provided!
Did you know that we do line renderings of tile layouts regularly? There is a archive of these drawings on the Design Ideas page, under Layout Sketches. The sketches can give you new ideas, or help your clients visualize tiles together. We can also do renderings of new designs as part of a new project proposal!
Thank you, Skippack tile for this project!
Here are just a few of the dozens of sketches available on Design Ideas:
We've added a new spin on Concordia, Clay Decor's most popular tile! This new design is a custom-commission, (originally made to a specific client's request) and now part of the collection for everyone! Also, introducing a new Concordia Sero in 17x4 inches sizing! See below for the total mural...
Here is Leaf Concordia pictured with Concordia Sero tall and narrow, with Kallisto molding frame. The tiles pictured here are loose/uninstalled in the studio, and are in Buttercream glaze. Total size, approximately 35x24 inches.
Special thanks to Stone and Tile Emporium for this new project!

Mosaics can also be used as a matting in between handmade tile and handmade tile moldings:
Unusual mosaic tiles set in a herring bone pattern work well with a custom-cut handmade medallion. The tile was originally a rectangle, but cut to an oval, and paired with handmade molding frames.
