ARTO Brick Releases Four New Ceramic Collections
Including three hand-painted tile lines and one range of thin brick veneer.
The Scirocco Collection features 32 beautiful quad designs inspired by the Arabian desert and Southern Italy. The tiles are hand silk-screened in a way that looks time-worn and are finished with hand-rubbed edges so each tile has its own personality and no two tiles are ever the same.
At only 3/8" thick, the thin nature of the Scirocco tiles allows them to be used adjacent to wood or porcelain. The Scirocco tiles come standard in 4", 6", and 8" sizes. Because of the process in which the tiles are made they are durable enough to be submerged in water or installed around heat.
The high-fire bodies are freeze thaw resistant and are ideal for floor and wall applications. If the standard Scirocco designs, colors, and sizes aren’t exactly what you need, ARTO can work with you to create custom tiles to complete your project.
The Silk Road collection is a handmade, high-fire ceramic tile with clean lines and crisp edges. After a smooth glaze is applied to the entire tile, each 8" hexagon deco is silk screened by hand ensuring each tile has a personal touch.
There are six standard patterns and 14 standard colors giving endless possibilities of combinations while still allowing room for custom shapes, designs, and colors for ambitious designers with specific needs.
Unlike cement or encaustic tiles that have a similar look, Silk Road tiles are much more versatile, don’t require a sealer, won’t patina over time, and are virtually maintenance free.
Built on a blonde ceramic body with a weathered texture and irregular edges, Zellige tiles come in a large variety of relief and mosaic patterns. The Zellige Collection includes Field Tiles, Decos, and Runners with four standard colors—white, black, turquoise, and gold. Pressing, jet cutting, hand-painting, and glazing techniques are all used to create the intricate, Moroccan-inspired patterns within the product range.
Glazed Ceramic Thin Brick Veneer
ARTO’s new Glazed Ceramic Thin Bricks are made through an extruded clay process that provides a unique surface texture that can be left unglazed for a natural look or glazed with more than 80 different color options. The bricks, designed for interior and exterior wall applications, are extremely durable and fade resistant. With a thickness of 5/8" and a length of 8" the bricks come in 2" and 4" widths. Corner pieces with a 3 5/8" return are also available to complete the look of full bricks.
The Scirocco, Silk Road, and Zellige Collections are compatible with ARTO’s entire range of Studio Field tile and trim and can be used on walls and floors.
All four of the new ceramic collections are suitable for indoors and outdoors, freeze thaw conditions, and wet environments.
