Reinterpreting ancient Japanese art: Lacquer collection by Lunada Bay Tile

Lacquer collection includes high-fired ceramic tiles with layers of colors and a glossy finish.

Lunada Bay Tile has launched its Lacquer collection, including high-fired ceramic tiles with layers of colors and a glossy finish.

Lacquer ceramic tiles are created with a multistep process that begins with applying random striations of color to the tiles, which are then fired at high temperatures. A clear coat is added, and the tiles are fired again to create a reflective finish. The result is a modern approach to the art of traditional lacquerware.

The Lacquer line includes two shapes: 1 x 6-inch rectangle and 1¾ x 4-inch elongated hexagon, both sold attached to a mesh backing for easy installation. The mosaics are available in five striated colorways.
