new california is a line of glazed brick tile inspired by the landscapes of the northern california coast. cool greys, warm earth and variegated greens echo the natural landscape of california’s beaches, headlands and woods. equally at home in traditional and modern settings, new california echoes the artistry and aesthetic of california’s influential mid-century craft movement. named for the native flora that inhabit the wild coastal landscape, this line of tile represents the beauty and quiet, earthy elegance of california.
new california is a locally produced, artisan tile created in clé tile’s san rafael guild. clay for this line is sourced from the base of the sierra nevada foothills. minimally processed, this rugged material possesses natural mineral inclusions which when fired, make every tile a truly unique expression of the earth from which it is made. glazes are formulated of natural minerals and pigments, giving each kiln load a small batch, hand crafted feel.
