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!
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.
At Clay Decor it's all about custom handmade artwork, made to order just for you. We created a shortcut that trims couture from 6 weeks to GUARANTEED TO SHIP IN 2 WEEKS! Clay Decor has created the most popular designs and bisque fired them. From here, the tiles can be easily custom-cut in the studio on the wet saw and glazed in any of our hand-created glazes: http://www.clay-decor.com/finish-colors.php

Clay Decor just launched a new Web site! The new clay-decor.com has an updated look and is much easier to use. We cut the fat--so to speak--and made the site 18 pages as opposed to over 120! The pictures are much faster to download now and are compatible with different browsers and different devices (like smart phones). Check it out and let us know what you think!
