Tile Handmade In America with the InLine & Highline Collections
Pratt & Larson’s designers and artisans have been creating handmade ceramic tile in Oregon for almost 40 years. Quality, artistry and innovation have been the hallmarks of this well-respected tile line for decades. All three of those qualities are on display with two contemporary, design forward series – InLine and Highline – available through the Rubble Tile showroom.
Pratt & Larson’s InLine Series at Rubble Tile
The InLine series is a newer addition to Pratt & Larson’s Bas Relief collection (low relief). They’re Bas Relief designs project slightly from the tile or in some cases are inscribed into the surface of the tile. This creates natural pooling, but also allows you to create larger fields of pattern and texture.
InLine enhances a classic shape with contemporary, linear patterning. The handmade quality is immediately evident in the glaze variation that pools artfully into each tile’s relief lines.
Consisting of 12 different 3×6 designs, InLine creates beautiful,intriguing layers of pattern and geometry when used individually or in combination.
InLine allows you to create patterns as simple or complex as you desire, the options are endless. You can use Pratt & Larson’s layout suggestions, or create a new combination of your own.
The Highline Series by Pratt & Larson
Inspired by a vast array of sources – ancient Moroccan mosaics, Americana quilt blocks, encaustic tile designs and streamlined art deco architecture- the Highline series uses distinctive, raised lines to build dynamic patterns.
This graphic line work creates expansive patterns allowing for grand scale installations. Lines can appear subtle or more defined, depending on your glaze and grout choices. In a single color the glazes flow from the high points to reveal striking designs.
Any of the eight Highline design patterns may also be hand filled with color selections from Pratt & Larson’s delightfully bold gloss palette, their classic gloss colors, or their crackle palettes. Incorporating Highline into your next project will absolutely transform your space into a room of beauty, magic and significance.
