There are many reasons designers choose terra cotta, one of the primary reasons being the ability to customize the material in form and finish. As evidenced by its use throughout history, terra cotta can easily be formed into innumerable profiles and finished with textures and glazes giving it the appearance of alternate materials like metal or stone. Boston Valley maintains a strong competitive advantage in both these aspects with our use of 4 forming methods and more than 30 years of glaze matching and creation. The following pages will introduce you to the color, texture and glaze finishes possible when working with terra cotta.
