The New Terracotta philosophy places an emphasis on handmade production which means no two tiles are ever the same. Traditional techniques result in a unique, tactile quality to the finish and shape. Subtle shade variations, irregular edges and small imperfections are all part of the time-worn aesthetic.
An offset triangle layout creates a striking sharp geometry which ties in with the trend for tribal patterns. Clean lines result in a graphic aesthetic, while the raw finish continues to celebrate the hand-made look. In a forest green tone this taps into the fashion for all things green, bringing a natural element indoors.
In recent years the hexagon shape has become a modern tile classic, welcoming a fresh geometric approach to surface design. The New Terracotta honeycomb hex continues to be a firm favourite. Combined with the ‘Mystery Teal Explosion’ glaze, the resulting colour has a richness and depth which works perfectly when creating a modern eclectic interior.
An ocean-inspired fish scale shape is a new addition to the range, used here in a luxe midnight blue ‘Petroleum Oxide’ colour. Ideal for a bathroom, this unique shape is a perfect alternative to a regular metro tile. The striking finish and texture is obtained by applying the glaze to the reverse surface of the raw tile; the array of indents and textures allows the depth of the glaze to vary creating a multi tone finish.
Another new shape option is the curved T-drop which looks beautifully glamorous in a warm, metallic tone. The satin sheen finish reflects the light, displaying highlights of molten gold. The combination of the autumnal bronze colour and soft, organic shape is used here to create a sumptuous, elegant style.
