clé Introduces New Belgian Reproduction Tile Shapes

Posted on 16 April 2018 by cradmin

clé introduced Belgian Reproduction tile in three new shapes: rectangle, losange diamond, and circle. The Flemish black tiles now consist of seven shapes in square, hex, rectangle, losange diamond, circle, star and cross.

The Belgian Reproduction tiles are hand crafted by artisans who are working in the traditional method of wood-fired terracotta production. The blackened clay lends the chalky surfaces the elegant patina of age. By combining the unglazed tiles with contrasting shapes and grout, a dramatically patterned surface is created. The versatile tiles can be installed indoors and out, on floors and walls. The tiles are sized from 2 in. by 8 in. rectangles to 8 in. squares, hex, and circles. The Belgian Reproduction collection is available exclusively on clé.

“We’ve long admired the grand courtyards of northern Europe, the gray patina and refined rusticity of Belgian design and have been on a quest to find a tile that would echo these elements. We discovered this exquisite blackened clay, and took a restored form of terracotta to create these Belgian Reproduction tiles, which are perfect for grounding projects with an austerity as striking as an antique Belgian surface.” said Sarah Lonsdale, Creative Director of clé

Clé sarah & ruby

Design by Sarah & Ruby featuring softened geometric shapes

Clé, the international artisan tile e-boutique, introduced its exclusive Artist Cement Collection of hand- made encaustic cement tiles. The tiles were designed by eleven artist studios located in Europe, South America and the United States. The series includes architects, artists, designers, and sculptors that include: ALT for Living, Boris Aldridge, Coletivo Muda, Deborah Osburn, Erica Tanov, Gachot Studios, John Whitmarsh, Michelle Weinberg, Ruan Hoffmann, Sarah & Ruby, and Smink Things. Each tile reflects personal visual inspirations from vintage textiles to the abstraction of nature. The tiles are 8in. by 8in. square and hexagons. The tiles are pre-polished and pre-sealed and can be installed indoors or out, on walls and floors.

“Our current encaustic cement tile collection is anchored with 19th century patterns, and so it’s exciting for us to introduce new work that has been envisioned by such provocative minds outside a revered segment of our traditional tile world. These artists are creating alluring interpretations of a classic tile, merging historic techniques with their own distinctive sentiments to create modern design,” said Deborah Osburn, founder and creative director of clé. It is Osburn’s goal to provide a forum for discovery and conversation about tiles created by impassioned artists creating remarkable surfaces.

clé Introduces Handmade Metallic Tiles

Posted on 10 September 2012 by cradmin

clé introduces metallic tiles in porcelain, ceramic and limestone that have been painted, glazed, and printed with the glimmer of silver, gold, iron, platinum and copper. The tiles are produced by different international tile artists. Along with gold, the Byzantina rectangle series by Italian artist Adriano Ricchetti of Il Monile, includes iron, platinum, and silver.

Brenda Bates creates her Welbeck tile in her potter’s studio in Cornwall, England. Fascinated by aquatic life in the Celtic Sea, Bates has created the Coast Collection, immortalizing sea stars in hand made tile, delicately painted in 24k gold and platinum. Her Platinum Collection is a study in abstraction, using metallics to define irregular shapes.The weight of the precious metals against the delicate translucent glaze causes the random crackled surface.

The clé Classic Tile Collection has taken the traditional material of porcelain and rendered it modern with faux metal finishes of oxidized steel, iron and copper.

The Metallic Porcelain series allows for installation of a tile where weight or temperature would be problematic for metal. The tile slabs are 13 by 40 inches and can be installed on floors and walls, indoors and out.

The Dutch artist Hanneke Steenmetz silk screens her Shakespeare inspired graphics onto limestone tile for her Studio H.  All of her images are available in gold, silver and copper.
