The mill’s has recently added American Slate, a glazed tile, to its porcelain Artemis brand. “This is an outstanding interpretation of the natural slate with all its beautiful multicolor characteristics presented on a subtle cleft structured surface,” said Massimo Ballucchi, director of marketing and product development. “We have replicated the natural movement in these stones to bring a piece of nature into your home or commercial application.

The series five colors are Twilight Black, Safari Green, Sandbar (beige-brown), Mountain Peak (brown-rust) and Cliff (grey-beige) and were developed to complement the ambiance of today’s American home, he noted. “These colors are a blend of many rich hues found in nature; each plays a specific role in complementing many other residential/commercial surfaces.”

It is available in 20- 13- and a new 13 x 20-inch rectangular size. Customers will be able to properly finish their installation with 3 x 13-inch floor bullnose and decorate with a 2-inch mesh mounted mosaic for each color. The edges of the tile are straight to replicate the ones of cut stone.

The mill also offers the upscale Quarzite, another glazed porcelain tile. “It is a modern interpretation of the quartzite stone with all its beautiful multicolor and texture characteristics,” he explained. “We have replicated the natural movement in these stones to bring a piece of nature into your home or commercial application.”

The series has four colors: Desert (Sand), Lagoon (Walnut), Dawn (Multicolor) and Musk (green), which are a blend of many rich hues found in nature.

Quartzite is available in 20-, 13- and a new 13 x 20-inch rectangular size. “Customers will be able to properly finish their installation with 3 x 13-inch floor bullnose and decorate with a 2×2 mesh mounted mosaic for each color,” he explained “The edges of the tile are straight to replicate the ones of cut stone.”
