Malibu Series

Inspired by tiles produced at historic Malibu Potteries (1929-32), this series incorporates the cuerda seca or resist-line technique. Available in either matte or gloss glazes.

Vintage California Series

Inspired by the historic D&M and Hispano Moresque tile companies, the technique utilized here is a version of the cuerda seca method but resulting in a more painterly look. The tiles in this series have an antiqued semi-gloss texture.

Tunisian Series

This series has a glossy surface but also has an antique look. Incorporating a cuerda seca method all our own, these tiles look like a cross between our Vintage California tiles and a historic tile made in Tunisia.

Relief Series

These tiles have intricate patterns that are first hand carved and then pressed from plaster molds. The pattern, as stated, is in relief. We incorporate this method for many of our Craftsman-style tiles but have introduced a few relief patterns in a more Modern-Style. Available in either matte or gloss glazes.

Raised Line Series

Also known as cuenca, this technique is made with an actual raised clay line that delineates the pattern. Many historic tile companies all over the world employed versions of this technique. Available in matte or gloss glazes.

Incised Series

This series is also a kind of relief, but because it is different than any of the others we make, we thought it best to create a separate series. Often these tiles are made with the subject glazed and the background left as unglazed terracotta. These can create a beautiful textured field, as stair risers, or are often inserted with terracotta pavers.
