Gorgeous New Rift Combinations

Our Rift Tiles are an exciting way to add texture and dimension to your tile design.

We layer and layer and layer two colors of glaze, side-by-side, on one tile.  Sometimes this creates a chemical reaction between the two glazes during firing, resulting in dynamic bubbles. Other times, the result is more subtle and appears like an ocean wave,  a semi-transparent  color overlay, or even created a third color entirely.

We love every one of our Rift combinations and find great fun in exploring these glaze combinations to create some really unique tiles.

While assembling our latest designer sample boxes of 2″x 2″ tile , we’ve decided to add a few of these surprise Rift tiles to each one.  You never know what you’ll get and you may just be the first to see a brand new laNeva colorway!

Please email [email protected] if you’re interested in a sample box of our 2″ x 2″ tile.  These include all of our solid colors and a sampling of Rift color combinations.  If you are interested in a specific colorway, please contact us for more information and availability.

We want your input. Love these? Hate these? Have ideas for a Rift colorways that we haven’t shown yet?

Announcing the 2011 “IT” Colors!

Thanks to all of you who voted in the poll to choose our three limited edition glaze colors for 2011. We had a great response and after some changes in rank through the first day, the winners were soon evident and stayed on top through the remainder of the voting.

Announcing the winning colors (Drumroll is so passé. How about a rockin’ foot stomp?)….

#1: With 33% of the vote and already a pre-order: Laguna!

#2: Anything but boring, gray is hot, especially with these brights: Smoke!

#3: Rounding out the top three: “She uses Tangerine(s)!!”*

These colors will be available for samples and orders on Monday, May 2nd.  We’re also planning fabulous Rift Series color combos with these new glazes used in conjunction with our existing Solid Colors.  Thanks again everyone and we look forward to another exciting product launch coming in the very near future!

How will handmade tile accent your life?

laNeva News: December 2010

December already. Wow. So much has been going on behind the scenes recently at laNeva Artisan Tile. We have some exciting changes to announce for the end of 2010 and the start of 2011!

  • PARTNERS: laNeva is thrilled to announce our newest partners in the tile biz: Spacial Adaptation, who will be representing our tile nationally, along with a host of other amazing earth-friendly products.
  • BOLD BORDERS: We’ve been hard at work on our LINEAL Border Collection of 6 large, pre-designed tile borders, along with our delicate SLICE Accessories Collection based off of our Rift Series tiles. Please stay tuned, our next post will be to announce the launch of these fabulous customize-or-not designs! You can choose one of our suggested color palettes or customize to your liking using our any of our standard glazes.
  • THE CART IS DEAD: As you may have noticed, we are no longer offering our online shopping cart. While it was a flashy sales avenue, it became evident that with so many custom designs, an online order venue was just not relevant.  It is kind of nice to know that humans are still needed, in both the production and order placement!
  • SAMPLES,  ANYONE? We are working to implement online sample orders, without all the cumbersome cart features that we experienced with our online shopping.
  • PRIVACY, PLEASE! Another feature on to be implemented in early 2011 is a password-protected section of the site for our dealers and members of the trade.

As we continue to explore new and exciting ways to use our Rift and solid color tiles, we look forward to being a part of your lives in 2011.  Thanks for all your love and support in 2010. Happy Holidays!
