Featured Product: Blue Slide Art Tile – Point Reyes Station, CA
This month, we are proud to introduce the newest addition to our San Jose and Burlingame showrooms. Native to the beautiful and coastal Point Reyes Station, Blue Slide Art Tile offers a handcrafted tile line that can shape any space into a tranquil utopia. For 23 years, this artisan tile studio has stuck to their Hand Made beliefs. It without a doubt shows in their elegantly crafted line of humble tiles, classic borders and charming decos. Let’s not forget their amazing array of organic glazes!
Blue Slide Art Tiles are handcut using brass and wooden tools, and even the simplest piece is handled up to 30 times. With a coveted palette of over 90 colors, their lustrous glazes have a depth and refinement unsurpassed. From shimmery watercolors to rich mattes, the multilayered colors are hand brushed, offering every installation unique variation and beauty. The handmade quality of Blue Slide’s tile reflects the traditional Arts and Crafts movement, with the aesthetic of the master artist evident.
