At Archival Designs we believe in working with a client to produce a personalized work of ceramic art to fit there specific needs. This can range from a bowl for their salad to hand carved tile for an entire kitchen. We offer a wide range of original colors and patterns. What makes our colors so unique is depth that comes from high fire reduction glazes. These glazes produce colors and brilliance that can not be achieved at lower temperatures or with commercial glazes. Each piece of tile that we create is hand made and individually glazed. This makes each piece unique, whether it is a 4" flat tile or a curving carved spiral. Our main emphasis in tile is creating large scale carved murals for walls and backsplashes. With these we start with the customers vision and transform those into a functioning work of art. Many of the pictures on this site show the end results of our creative process. Our pottery is rooted in it's functionality, transforming the everyday item in to a work of art. The majority of our work is thrown out of a white stoneware on the potter's wheel. Our glazing techniques are influenced by the geometry of the natural world and our interaction within it.
