Oceanside Glasstile’s Divine Intervention

ANTIQUE MIRROR FEATURES HEAVENLY ALLURE

Carlsbad, CA – August, 2016 – Oceanside Glasstile gets ethereal this summer with three additional Antique Mirror colors delivered straight from the heavens. With inspiration from the sun god himself to the depths of Neptune’s kingdom, Oceanside Glasstile applies otherworldly allure to their Devotion color palette. Additionally a new pattern is brought to Devotion’s fold taking inspiration from the salty seashore and translating it into stunning home décor. Prepare to get lost in the stars or swim for sunken treasure during your next design odyssey.

Devotion is no stranger to bold color, glittering movement or intricate details. When the question arose to add additional antique mirror options to the color palette, In-house Designer Cathy Aroz enthusiastically responded, “I really love working with the antique mirrors. Each color shines its own personality into the design. Some patterns need just a touch of mirror to bring a little fire to the project while others can go bolder and bigger creating an element of drama that will literally take your breath away.” The three new additions Helios, Astral and Nocturne are set to do just that.

Devotion’s Cathedral pattern is seraphic with a touch of Astral.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Helios, named after the former Greek God of the sun, explodes with sunbursts and solar flares arcing across a field of bronze. While Astral, reminiscent of the moon’s reflection on the ocean’s surface takes the cooler side of the color palette with its sultry silver splashes set against ripples of navy blue. And last, but certainly not least, Nocturne, true to its name, evokes the majesty of a clear starry night sky. With options like a 6” x 12” micro-beveled field (available in Astral and Nocturne) or the flexibility of custom design with Devotion’s patterns, these new colors will have the trumpets sounding the glory that is your residential or commercial project.

‘She sells, sea shells’ is the summer mantra for the Devotion Collection as a new Scallop pattern is introduced to the family. “Scallop is a classic pattern which has seen a big resurgence in the design world,” Cathy Aroz explains. So it is only fitting that Oceanside Glasstile add this classic shape to their offering but not without it’s own modern twist. “Our art glass can have so much movement,” Cathy details, “I wanted to keep the lines simple with just a subtle layer to open up the possibility to play with color and depth.” This new pattern is the perfect opportunity to create a beautiful space with bold color selection and placement.

The Newest Blue of all the Hues – YInMn

There is a brand new shade of blue that was just stumbled upon through a chemis-tastrophe and it’s absolutely BLUE-tiful! Scientists discovered the color accidentally mixing Yttrium, Indium and Manganese together at 2000 degree F.

new-blue-YInMn-sparks-creative-color-application-with-glass-tile

They’ve dubbed the color YInMn Blue. What makes it so cool? Besides the fact that it’s blue . . . The pigment’s crystal structure keeps it from fading, even when exposed to oil or water. Now it’s being used in sketches, paintings and it’s even being considered for rooftops as a solution to keep buildings cooler.

 So to throw it up to the scientist of the YInMn creation, we celebrate the beauty of blue in all of its tiled glory.

Oceanside Glasstile + Islandstone Debut New Collection

Friendship, Brotherhood… Kinship.

glass-tile-and-stone-tile-by-the-best-US-companiesCarlsbad, CA – April, 2016 – Collaboration is key in 2016 and true to that trend Oceanside Glasstile and Island Stone launch their new marriage of glass and stone.

Anchored in beach culture and driven by a passion to create beautiful designs, the two companies pair the best of their offerings to create one stunning collection. Using four natural stones – grey sandstone, mint sandstone, silver quartzite and white marble – Oceanside Glasstile adds their molten magic to the union. The result? A beautiful Kinship of stunning stone and jewel like glass that will have you wanderlust for all corners of the great Pacific.

Drawing inspiration from the coastal bluffs and epic point breaks of these kindred spirit’s backyards, Kinship’s Crescent piece has inspired two new patterns. Converge features a gentle cascade of pieces, while Lineage mimics the mild rise and fall of an ocean’s swell.

Fully customizable with the entire Oceanside Glasstile palette, the Converge and Lineage patterns will also feature mint sandstone, grey sandstone, and silver quartzite.

Inspired by the subtle sand dunes of Indonesia’s cascading beaches, the Wedge piece offers an understated dimension with its gentle slopes and rounded edges. With two new fully customizable patterns, Origin and Unison stand in opposition. Where Origin offers a random pattern, Unison offers harmony through a timeless linear placement.

Whatever your design goals may be, the new Origin and Unison patterns are available in the entire Oceanside Glasstile color palette, as well as, white marble, silver quartzite or grey sandstone.

Kinship’s third and final new pattern, Abode, is a nod to the timeless nature of an offset brick. Featuring a 1 1/4” x 4 1/8” mosaic rectangle, Abode is fully customizable with all four new stones and the entire Oceanside Glasstile color palette. Abode captures your eye through free-flowing movement of glass to stone, providing added flexibility to this collections design opportunities.

“Cheers!” It’s the first word Oceanside Glasstile products hear before beginning their journey to up-cycled glory! Each year they melt more than 2 million pounds of post-consumer bottle glass.

The result – a gem-like substance crafted into stunning glass tile. They continuously strive for improvements in energy efficiency, and maintain a closed loop manufacturing process where they re-melt all of their own glass trimmings. Manufacturing innovative products with a sustainable process is an important business value, but . . . that’s just where the fun begins. Encouraged by the leadership of the company, Oceanside Glasstile employees support all kinds of causes both near and far. Embracing social responsibility, they find joy in restoring orphanages, building schools, planting new trees and collaborating with the generation of tomorrow. Both home and commercial designs will get a dose of good vibes when they incorporate this environmentally-aware, socially-responsible product into their work-in-progress.

Oceanside Glasstile Finds New Inspiration in Familiar Places

NEW PATTERNS FROM AROUND THE WORLD JOIN DEVOTION

Carlsbad, CA – November, 2015 – With the introduction of three new Antique Mirrors to the Devotion color palette in early 2015, Oceanside Glasstile saw an explosion of interest in their art glass collection. As a result, this Fall they will launch three new patterns – Random Linear, Jali and Sirena – allowing for more creativity and customization as you journey from oceans deep to the bustling streets of Morocco.

All of Devotion’s 8 water jet and 5 hand cut mosaic patterns can be found for your free-play enjoyment in Oceanside Glasstile’s “Custom Mosaic” design tool located in the “Resources” section of the www.glasstile.com. The design program allows you to render myriad color combinations, create custom blends, and email client ideas for samples. There’s tremendous functionality in the design tools for all of their mosaic patterns including both art glass and molten glass product lines.

Answering the demand for more variety following the launch of their Offset 1×6, 2×6, and 3×6 patterns, Oceanside Glasstile’s final pattern in their Fall Collection is a Random Linear. Full of life and movement, Devotion’s art glass transforms the new Random Linear pattern into a bubbling brook or rolling coastal fog. The natural variation of the art glass creates a dynamic flow, and makes it an easy selection for both traditional and contemporary design. Random Linear is all about architectural repose.

Random Linear in Serenity

In keeping with true Oceanside Glasstile fashion, Jali is a traditional arabesque shape with a twist. Channeling a new Morocco, Jali’s interplay of large and small arabesques draw the eye in while the outlines offer a break from the standard repetitive pattern. Utilizing their water-jet capabilities, Oceanside Glasstile has created a unique network of pieces – intertwining two full body arabesques with a vine work outline. Jali is a new opportunity to create and push the limits of this traditional pattern.

Jali PR Release

Jali in Rain Cloud

Translating to “mermaid”, Sirena is an original pattern reminiscent of the mythos it was named after. Developed by Oceanside Glasstile’s Design + Merchandising Visionary, Cathy Aroz, “The proportion and scale of the organic shape allow it to fit well as a subtle texture on a backsplash or a larger focal point as art.” As a result, Sirena’s delicate petals seem to drift on their own up and down your wall.

Sirena in Seraphine

Oceanside Glasstile’s Devotion collection is a union of stained glass, water-jet technology and hand-cut artistry. With a color palette that ranges from bold jewel tones to earth inspired neutrals, the layering of texture, mirror and iridescent surfaces adds a three dimensional quality to any installation. Many of Devotion’s patterns have organic roots, such as Lotus and Mariposa, while hand-cut patterns City Lights and Zest play to a more modern trend. With an in-house water-jet machine, Oceanside Glasstile also has the capacity for completely custom projects. From restaurant and building signs to scaled renditions of their own patterns, Oceanside Glasstile’s design and engineering teams are ready to render special project requests.
