Clé introduces Tides, a new series in the Watermark collection of handcrafted porcelain tile. Designed by Luca Osburn, an avid surfer, Tides adds four new colors, which reflect Osburn’s favorite surfing locations in northern California. Ranging from the fog-laded gray Cronkhite, to the brilliant sunlit ocean greens of Kelly’s Cove and Jetty, each hue represents an environment where Osburn masters the waves. Outer Sunset was influenced by the faded pink row houses that border San Francisco’s Ocean Beach.

Osburn is the first Artist in Residence at clé. The program was started to introduce young adults to the artisan craft of tile making and teach them the skills necessary to design and produce their own work. Osburn was experimenting with the indigo pigments used in the Watermark collection and inspired by worn denim and the waves he rides, created the new Tides finish. The tiles are 4 by 8 in. and are suitable for interior and exterior installations on both floors and walls.
