What is significant about this new collection?

These 8- x 8-inch, ceramic tiles are available in six different colorways: Blush, Cloud, Ebony, Mint, Sapphire and Terracotta. All are designed to be used either individually or mixed-n-matched to create unique patterns with unlimited design options.

Adams states “Inspired by the timeless designs of Italian designer, Gio Ponti, combined with the traditional cuerda seca technique of adding texture and a crackly white glaze, “Surfboards” is traditional yet modern at the same time.”
