“We find, dig, screen, and mix wild clay ourselves, with all the minor impurities that come with it.”
Tyler Hays continues to grow his design empire with the launch of the Annex, a 2,000-square-foot tile showroom and gallery in downtown New York, across the street from his successful furniture atelier. It showcases two ranges: wild clay dug on the site of his Philadelphia studio and clay from Wallowa County, Oregon, that’s part of his more affordable line. The latter’s Hexagonal is a rustic collection in mixed tones, while the rectangular BDDW Hand-Painted contemporizes Delftware. All come in matte, satin, or gloss glazes and are suitable for floor or wall applications.
