Meet the latest in modern classic combinations: commercial mosaic tiles and handmade tile medallions with frames.
Mosaics are a popular trend in backsplashes for their beauty and ease of installation. The latest in kitchen design combines many materials, where stone, glass and ceramics live in harmony. With all the choices in mosaics and customization in handmade artwork, homeowners are able to create completely unique personalized spaces. Handmade tiles are the ultimate in couture: Clay Decor offers custom designs, custom sizing, custom glazes, and custom shapes. Throw in a dash of mosaics, and watch your kitchen sparkle!!
Mosaics can provide the perfect backdrop to handmade tiles of all sizes:
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.
Clay Decor's artwork was featured in an award-winning kitchen in suburban Philadelphia! Harth Builders, working with Tile Gallerie in Dublin, PA, won a 2012 CotY (Contractor of the Year Award) for the Northeast Region Residential Kitchen Remodel Over $120,000. This beautiful renovation includes classic styling and historical design motifs. Here is the article featuring the kitchen from House and Home Magazine (DelValMedia, March 2013):
Move over 2x2 accents! For the first time, thanks to HomeTech Renovations (Fort Washington, PA), we can feature this unique finish as part of a large scale mural!
This mural was created using the Teres 5x5 tile design. Teres, meaning 'elegant' or 'rounded' in Latin, has a raised border along the edge, making it perfect for the Fractured Glaze finish. Subtle almond accents highlight the design where the interaction of Buttercream glaze and Ice Fractured glaze come together. 'Ice' Fractured finish makes the design sparkle as light reflects on the surface of each tile.
The finished kitchen will feature this mural amid handmade 4x8 subway tiles in Buttercream. Hopefully we can bring you the finished kitchen installation soon!

The current trend in remodeling is to personalize your space. Our dealer, HomeTech Renovations (Fort Washington, PA), has highlighted the idea of using local artists for the ultimate customization of a space. The article, by Nina Patel on page 85 in the June 2012 Remodeling Magazine, features comments from David Cerami (gotta love that name...) :), President of HomeTech about how local artists can come together to make a space totally unique. Not only can you guarantee an interior different from your neighbor, but it's also a great way to support artisans in your country and community!
