we do not currently sample this product

this is a made to order product and we do not offer samples

no sampling available. since there is a time lag between sampling and purchase we cannot guarantee that you will be able to purchase from the same kiln batch which makes sampling redundant. also since each firing produces a wide degree of variation, we cannot show the breadth of variation. instead, with each kiln load we will take new photos showing the variation that exists and provide a detailed description.

product description + credits

* this product comes in 360 pieces per box and makes up 37 pieces per square foot

shades of translucent white with pale pink and blue overtones. occasional surface imperfections in the glaze from the firing with the clay body occasionally revealing itself.

our eastern earthenware is heralded for its variation in color, shade and surface texture, unlike the uniform glazes of tiles fired in gas or electric kilns. its exquisite surface is the result of wood-firing where everything from the fusion of the glazes with the clay, placement in the kiln, the dispersion of ash, to the seasons and weather all serve to create an alchemy that transforms each tile. we love eastern earthenware on any vertical surface, such as a kitchen backsplash, shower and statement walls, and fireplace surround.

please note: no sampling available. since there is a time lag between sampling and purchase we cannot guarantee that you will be able to purchase from the same kiln batch which makes sampling redundant. also since each firing produces a wide degree of variation, we cannot show the breadth of variation. instead, with each kiln load we will take new photos showing the variation that exists and provide a detailed description.

about this collection

eastern earthenware features over 30 glazes that are highly textured, gloriously imperfect and infused with the most unexpected color variations. this concert of elements can only be derived from an artisan’s hand using unfiltered elements freshly mined from nature and further distinguished by the use of a volatile firing atmosphere.

we encourage you to explore this series for any of your bath or kitchen splashes, your walls and floors, and your interior or exterior spaces.

faq

how much variation should i expect?

eastern earthenware is created from natural glazes, pigments and terra cotta clay. every one of these natural materials is completely unfiltered allowing for maximum variation and irregularities created by firing in hand made kilns. all of this hand craft is what makes eastern earthenware so magically varied- tile to tile. please enjoy the extreme variation of color, shade and surface texture. what does this mean to you? your eastern earthenware order will contain the following:

  • size variation
  • thickness variation
  • cracked tiles
  • chipped edges (from hand chiseling each tile)
  • pitted glaze surfaces (from the unfiltered terra cotta reacting with the kiln heat)
  • crazing (from the glaze and the clay body cooling at different temperatures)

please note that, once installed properly and grouted, the above issues will bring you the textured eastern earthenware look that promises a distressed and imperfect surface of incomparable character.

HOWEVER, if the above irregularities differ from your expectations for a less distressed installation, then clé highly recommends that you select another tile that will yield more surface regularity.

what is the standard grout joint size for eastern earthenware?

because all eastern earthenware is hand cut after firing into the individual tiles, they are crafted to allow for a very tight grout joint. please look at our resources/specification guide.

where can i use eastern earthenware tiles?

almost everywhere! but please see the "usage" section for more details.
