The Art of Handcrafted Tile

At each stage of growth, Status Ceramics has remained committed to craftsmanship, quality and timely delivery as color remains to be the centerpiece of our design process.

"Our glazes are a unique palette of colors and textures that defy replication"

Handcrafted artisan tile may seem like an anachronism in an era of mass production. Hand-finishing each trim piece, glazing every field tile individually, and inspecting every order to ensure the utmost quality require time and craftsmanship. The end result, however, is worth the effort. Every Status tile begins from our unique white talc clay composition. Since clay is the canvas for our glazes, we have found that a white body provides us with the greatest versatility in our glaze colors.

In design, nothing is more important than color.

Working from that simple premise, Richard Scott founded Status Ceramics in the summer of 1986. As a former serigraph printer, potter and leaded glass worker, Richard was surrounded by color and could see the impact of color choices in design. Using white clay for the body of the tile, he experimented with glazes, creating rich colors that sprang off the tiles that were his canvas.
