Asci was inspired by concrete&#8217;s original liquid state and how it moves as it&#8217;s being poured. His idea was to express that liquid-induced movement in a solid form while also designing single concrete tile that could in turn generate multiple patterns for residential and commercial uses.
The result is a three-dimensional tile that evokes movement in different ways, depending on which pattern it’s used in. The dynamic form creates visual illusions based on how the light hits it with the shadows also causing extra dimension and texture. As with all KAZA Concrete tiles, the collection comes in a multitude of colors to work

The Agrarian Handpainted Collection from Fireclay Tile

                                                <a href="http://design-milk.com/the-agrarian-handpainted-collection-from-fireclay-tile/fireclay-tile-agrarian-collection-1/" data-wpel-link="internal"><img src="http://0.design-milk.com/images/2017/06/Fireclay-Tile-Agrarian-Collection-1-810x568.jpg" alt="The Agrarian Handpainted Collection from Fireclay Tile" /></a>

The <a href="https://www.fireclaytile.com/handpainted/agrarian/" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">Agrarian Collection</a>, which features eight graphic patterns, was inspired by the rich Northern California landscape of crop formations surrounding its factory. The geometric layouts can be seen from the sky or aerial photography and translate perfectly into modern tiles.
With eight patterns and three color motifs (warm, cool, and white) to choose from, the possibilities for layouts are endless. You can stick to one pattern in one color, or create a patchwork using every color if you choose. Every tile is painted by hand where they let the glaze pool as it’s applied from the tip of the bottle.

WEAVE is a series of concrete tiles inspired by the rhythmic patterns of sand dunes, as well as traditional weaving techniques, hence its name. Available in three styles – Maldives, Kalahari, and Flat – and in two sizes, WEAVE features gentle contouring that creates a dynamic visual when repeated. The concrete has surfaces made from a special formulated concrete that&#8217;s known as &#8220;liquid stone&#8221; giving them a smooth finish.
