tides is a new series in the watermark collection of hand crafted porcelain tile. designed by artist in residence Luca Osburn, an avid surfer, the collection is named for the magical quality of the tides effecting the waves that greet him each session. this collection adds four new colors, which reflect osburn's favorite surfing locations in northern california. this faded pink is inspired by the row houses that border san francisco's ocean beach (aka the outer sunset).

dreamy, meditative, and wildly dissimilar- please expect every one of the tiles from this series to invoke the unique individuality of its namesake- watermark.

about this collection

The Watermark collection of hand crafted porcelain tile is designed by artist Deborah Osburn and her son, Luca Osburn, also an artist and an avid surfer. Watermark tiles are an ombre-effect tile inspired by Japanese textile dyeing techniques. They begin with an unglazed porcelain tile, the color of paper, then dip, stroke, stain and wash with authentic indigo and gold verdigris pigments. Deborah Osburn takes all of this tile goodness and converts two tactile and mutually enriching materials (porcelain and pigment) into her latest series - Watermark.

faq

what grout joint size, type, and color do you recommend?

clé recommends the use of mapei flexcolor cq grout and a 1/4" grout joint with this collection.

grout color selection is always up to our client and/or their design professional. however, clé is often asked for our opinion on best grout selections for our tiles. and due to the large array of grout colors that are now available, clé would like to offer this general guideline on a foolproof grout color selection for any of your clé tiles.

first, have your professional tile contractor complete your tile installation, except for the grout portion.
next, when ready to grout, ask your contractor to bring ALL grout color charts from his preferred grout manufacturers, for your review.
lastly, choose a time of day when you are most pleased with the lighting in your space (either natural lighting, installed lighting or a blend of both). during that lighting and time of day, select the grout color that best matches your tile selection.

note that the full mapei flexcolor cq color catalogue contains 40 colors to choose from. visit the mapei website to view.

any other tips for grouting?

we recommend carefully finger grouting to keep grout in the joints and off the surface of the decorative tiles. you may find it easiest to employ this grouting method by using a grout bag for applying the grout into the joint and finalizing the grout finish with your finger or a soft, wet cloth. for more information about grouting please see our watermark installation & maintenance guide.

what type of sealant should i use with my watermark tiles?

clé ONLY recommends the use of the clé top coat kit for sealing ALL applications of watermark tiles.

IMPORTANT: use of any other sealant may strip the hand painted decoration off the surface of the tile.
please note that watermark tiles come with a single coat of the top coat applied.

for more information about sealing please see our watermark installation & maintenance guides.

do you offer trim for your watermark tile?

at clé we follow the international model of no trim and highly recommend our clients to do the same. below are the trim alternatives we recommend for this collection.
- if your project needs to turn a corner either inwardly or outwardly, mitering the tiles to meet seamlessly in a corner gives it the cleanest, crafted finish.
- like with any of our tiles, you can also build out the sheetrock so that the surface of the finished sheetrock is flush with the surface of the tile.

how do i take care of my watermark tiles?

as with any finely hand painted tile, clé warns against the use of any surface cleansers or scrubbing pads, especially during the installation process.cleaning watermark only requires the use of mild soap, water and soft cloths in most cases.
watermark tiles are chemically sensitive. do not use any cleaners that are not ph neutral.this includes vinegar, and simple green brand products.
always avoid harsh chemicals and acidic or alkaline cleaning products.

single coat reapplication of the clé top coat kit is required once a year on grout lines and the tile surface in shower applications due to the continuous exposure to water. reapplication is needed more often if installation is in a steam shower.

see watermark installation & maintenance guide for more information.

what does it mean for me that watermark tiles come with a single coat of the top coat already applied?


watermark tiles have the benefit of a single coat of the top coat already applied when they arrive. the coating provides stain resistance and therefore allows for a longer “reaction” time but will not render your tiles stain-free. with aggressive stains such as tomato sauce, wine, mustard, citrus etc., be sure to clean within 5 minutes.

clé ONLY recommends the use of the clé top coat kit for sealing all applications of watermark tiles.
IMPORTANT: use of any other sealant may strip the hand painted decoration off the surface of the tile.

how much variation should i expect?

how much variation should i expect? each and every hand painted watermark tile is different and unique, with heavy variation in color and pattern to be expected.

our tiles are subject to variations in color, texture, size and finish. it is very important to blend the tiles from all boxes once they arrive and place them in their installation area to ensure you have the layout you want before installing. do not install without blending tiles from all boxes.

if you are working with a highly color-variegated tile or a combination of tiles, we recommend that you follow the above recommendations—but match your grout to the color in your varied tile or tile combination that you would most like to accentuate.

watermark tiles, with the exception of the field tile that is rated 'level 2 slight', are rated 'level 4 heavy' for color variation, 'level 1 smooth' for texture variation, and 'level 2 medium; for size variation as outlined in our tile variation guide.

why do you suggest i order at least 15% more than my measurements?

industry standard suggests adding at least 15% overage due to tile cuts, potential breakage, or future repairs.
