A New Blue Delft Tile Line from a California Artist

April 17, 2017

Petaluma-based Forrest Lesch-Middelton has made a name for himself with his etched ceramic vessels and tiles featuring ancient patterns from around the world, intentionally distressed and scorched in the firing process.

His new Blue Delft line for Clé Tile represents his first foray into color, with patterns that are “influenced by the sacred geometry and arabesque designs found in the Middle East, North Africa, and Europe,” according to Clé Tile owner Deborah Osburn. Each tile is handmade individually and can be installed indoors and out, on floors and walls. The seven new tile designs are available in six-inch squares. Here’s a first look at the line.
