Dive in the tropics every day amidst a school of friendly little fish. This 7" x 12" large format artisan tile seams together to form a continuous pattern when assembled in a subway pattern. Perfect for showers, backsplashes and bathroom remodels. Use as a border tile or an entire wall!
At first glance, the surface of this large format art tile appears almost photographic. But running your fingers along the smooth, shiny surface reveals that the fish are actually sculpted in low relief in the porcelain clay body tile itself! Using the same traditional techniques as turn of the century American art tile, this distinctive contemporary design achieves it's incredible depth not by painting the pattern on the surface, but embossing it into the wet clay art tile prior to glazing. The thick glaze then fills the recesses and recedes from the edges, creating varying thicknesses and thus, varying values. For a more complete explanation, please visit our process page.

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!
