PORTLAND, OR -- Portland-based Clayhaus Ceramics has added 10 new shapes and 24 new matte finish glazes to its collection of handcrafted ceramic tile offerings. The new designs give homeowners and interior designers the opportunity to create a wide variety of bold, modern looks.

One of the new tile designs, "Triad," is the result of a new collaboration with Portland designer Stephanie Dyer. Clayhaus previously worked with Dyer to create the company's "Topo" collection of three-dimensional tile designs, which was introduced in 2011.Clayhaus Ceramics

"We now offer more than two dozen shapes and sizes of loose or sheeted field tile in addition to our 'Futura' and 'Topo' collections," said Clayhaus co-founder, Megan Coleman. "And with our new matte finish glazes, we offer 72 different standard color options, in addition to custom color matching on request. If you came to Clayhaus looking for a wide range of modern ceramic tile options, you came to the right place."

Like most of what Clayhaus offers, the new shapes are inspired by mid-century modern design and its emphasis on geometric patterns. Included in the new offerings are Triangle, Diamond, 2 x 2-inch Offset, 1 1/4-inch Circles, 2 1/2-inch Hexagon, Crystal Hex, Half Hex, Plume, Flow, and Triad. Pictured above are (bottom row): Crystal Hex pattern A and Flow; (top row): Triad, Half Hex pattern B and Plume.

Clayhaus' new matte finish glaze offerings carry unique names, such as "Kodiak," "Cinnabar," "Lichen" and "Beeswax," providing a nice complement to the company's 48 gloss finish glazes. By mixing gloss and matte finishes, designers can create a wide range of interesting looks and textures for the surfaces they create.

"I'm really excited to offer these new shapes and colors to our customers," said Clayhaus co-founder, Jason Coleman, the artisan behind the new looks. "There is nothing more rewarding than exploring the creative process and having the end result bring joy and happiness to someone else. I truly hope these new offerings will inspire some really cool designs."
