Crystal Series; New Designs!

Here are the latest additions to the Crystal Series; handmade ceramic tiles with carefully applied glass inlay.  Every tile has a unique combination of artisan colored and clear glass, making each tile a single work of sparkling art. Crystal Corners design in Slate Blue glass 6x6

Crystal Series: First Design Released!

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:

Crystal Concordia with Slate Blue + Clear glass

Crystal Concordia with Clear Glass

Crystal Concordia with Multi-colored Glass

Crystal Concordia with Black Sparkle Glass (with green shading around design from glass)

The glazes that work with glass are: Gloss White, Buttercream, Moonlight, and Candlelight.  Glass colors are a rainbow of options--samples can be provided!

Sketches for You--Did You Know??

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!

Handmade Tile + Mosaics = The New Classic

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:

Stone and Glass mosaic tiles in the 'field', in addition 2x2 handmade tiles tie it all together as they are peppered throughout the backsplash.

Aurelia with Kallisto frame (Old Gold), Satin White custom-sized surround and glass mosaic background tiles


Mosaics can also be used as a matting in between handmade tile and handmade tile moldings:

Aquarius 7x7 with Glass Mosaic in-set and custom narrow molding frame.  Commercial stone field tiles.


Sidereus 3x3s together with Sidereus 1x1 dots, and handmade Pencil molding frame, filled in with stone mosaic tiles.


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.

Concordia in Metallic Black glaze, stone mosaic tile, and Rope Molding frame.

Custom Coat of Arms

Here is the latest custom commission; a family coat of arms made into a mural, and custom sized to the client's space!  This mural has three parts, and it roughly 23 x 17 inches.  Chair Rail molding frames the work as a finishing touch, making the total size 28 x 22. Hand-Carved Tile Mold, Made From Poplar Wood

Complete Mural in Raw Clay (unfired)


NEW Fractured Glaze Windows!

A window that can sparkle anywhere!  Our NEW sculpted ceramic 'windows' are multi-level ceramic sculptures filled with Fractured Glaze.  Fractured Glazes are created from artisan glass and our own hand-formulated glaze finishes. These one-of-a-kind sculptures feature a totally unique combination of colors on each panel.  Also, the work is about an inch tall, making them more dimensional than our other tiles.  Edges are glazed, so the panels can be installed on a wall OR we can create a hook to allow the sculpture to hang independently.

'Sunset':  Glass and Ceramic, 19x13 inches

'Dreamy Day' Ceramic and Glass 15x13 inches


'MoonCloud Midnight': Ceramic and Glass, 20x16 inches

Clay Decor Tiles Featured in Award-Winning Kitchen!

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):

Fractured Glaze Comes to Life

Tiles pictured above are loosely laid out in the studio before shipping/installation.

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!


NEW Fractured Glazes!

Happy 2013!  Clay Decor just developed a new line of crackled glazes.  This glamorous new selection of 9 glazes adds a pop of color and sparkle to any interior.  Combine small tiles to make a large medallion, or create jewels with smaller decos around the wall--the possibilities are endless!

Fractured Glaze is a specialty glaze with a different personality than our regular finish color offerings.  Additional charges apply per square foot (on pricelist 'Policies' page).

Here are some guidelines and options:

  • Use on wall tiles only
  •  Can be applied to tiles 6x6 or smaller
  • Used only with tiles with raised borders on the edge
  • Small tiles can be pressed into a larger piece of clay to create this border needed around the edge
  • Choice of Bone or Gloss White glazes for background/edge/border
  • Custom Fractured colors available, inquire about samples and availability


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
