Complete your installation with our collection of subway tile shaped border and field tile. Custom order tiles in any glaze color to perfectly complement you decorative, patterned art tiles. Choose from one of our seven glaze colors. Any art tile pattern can be custom ordered with any glaze. Plan your project and have matching border and field tile made to order!
We originally designed our border and field tile to compliment our decorative tile patterns, but found that many people were interested in using these tiles as stand alone field tiles. When arranged in a subway pattern, these tiles can make a distinctive installation. The rich natural glaze colors that we developed for our decorative tile are also nice just as color fields, and you'll not find the depth and richness of color from large tile manufacturers using synthetic glaze ingredients. One of the beautiful aspects of ceramic glaze is the way it gathers light, and subtly changes under different lighting conditions. Because our glazes are custom mixed in house, we can easily change the hue, value and saturation by altering the percentage of glaze oxides. If you have a color in mind that you don't see offered here, please reach out to us. We love challenge, and satisfying customers requests for custom colors is always a rewarding endeavor.
Oriental Wave Tile Pattern
Based on the traditional Japanese Hokusai
prints and paintings, this versatile pattern can be used in a variety of applications. Pictured here in a kaleidoscopic orientation, this tile can inspire you to play and have fun with your walk in shower ideas. Use it in a single row as a simple backsplash, or fill your entire shower with the swirling energy of the ocean! Whether your shower plans involve a full floor to ceiling use of patterned decorative tile, or just a band of color and pattern, this tile can accommodate.
The depth and fluidity of ocean waves are captured in the translucent glaze of this tile. The pattern is not printed on the tile, rather it is embossed into the wet porcelain clay while the tile is still wet. The subtle texture that is left behind is then flooded with tinted turquoise, deep blue or stone gray glaze. In the kiln firing, the glaze melts and pools into the texture, leaving behind varying thicknesses. This is what creates the varying shades of color. All of our glaze recipes are mixed in house in our Missoula, Montana studio. They are the result of years of testing to achieve the subtle color variations, which are derived from natural oxides from the earth, such as copper and cobalt. These deep rich colors are not available anywhere else.
To complete your walk in shower ideas, consider our Border and Field Tile, which can be glazed in a matching glaze color to our patterned tile. This tile is also compatible with most commercial tile. Please note however, that the actual size of each tile is 5 7/8" x 5 7/8", which is slightly smaller than most true 6" x 6" tile. The Oriental Wave tile can also be easily cut on an ordinary tile wet saw, making installation a breeze.
Framed with beautiful dark ash wood frame, these animal tiles will fit with any home decor, from traditional to contemporary in design. The crisp black and white graphics are created from original woodblock carvings by David Regan. Look closely, and you'll notice details that the artist has included, such as the eyes of would be deer hunters, hidden in the leaves of the tree. These graphics are rendered in fired on glaze, making the tiles both durable and beautiful. Perfect both for wall hanging and trivet use

Lush Grass Tile Biophilic Bathroom
If you've been looking shower tile for your biophilic bathroom design, then consider the Lush Grass pattern. This large format 7" x 12" rectangular tile captures the image of wet, thick grass just after a rain. Look closely at the detail, and you'll even notice droplets of water on the blades! Wether you choose to tile a small section on one of the walls of your shower, or line the entire enclosure from floor to ceiling with this tile, your daily shower routine will turn into a ritual that you look forward to. The biophilic design aesthetic seeks to make your bathroom into tranquil and serene space, surrounded by images of beauty from the natural world.
These tiles, like all Living Walls Tile, are made by hand, one at a time, in our small artisan tile shop in Missoula, Montana. Each tile is embossed with a subtle texture which when glazed with a tinted glaze, becomes filled, creating darker and lighter tones. This is an authentic process, no gimmicks, the texture is actually sculpted into the tiles! The lush green glaze, which is mixed in-house from our own original glaze recipe, is made from completely natural materials , such as feldspar and copper, which creates the beautiful, deep glaze surface. Our biophilic glaze colors are imbued with the natural colors of nature because they are mixed from natural ingredients!
To complete your shower tile designs, consider using our matching Border and Field Tile, which comes in varying widths and lengths and can be glazed with matching glaze. The Lush Grass Tile is also compatible in thickness with most commercial tile, and can be easily cut on a normal tile wet saw.
When assembled in a subway pattern, the individual reeds interlock on all four sides, creating the illusion of a thatched wall of grass. The visual depth that is created on this art tile is achieved by first embossing a texture into the wet porcelain clay. The rich green glaze pools in the recesses creating areas of darker value. Run your fingers along the smooth surface of this art tile and you will feel the underlying texture. Size, 7" x 12", never needs watering!
