encore ceramics

not only does encore ceramics make unbelievable tile, they are passionate about making tile the right way.  it is more than just an artisanal process, above all, encore ceramics make tile, "green up from the ground up".  they achieve this by doing everything they can to make their process as green as possible by saving energy, water and completely cutting out raw waste. 




green from the ground up...

saving energy

solar panels keep us on the bright side of energy use.  encore ceramics were at the forefront of solar business solutions, and our installation was originally one of the top ten largest in the northwest.  with 176 sharp 165 watt solar panels on our roof, we generate 35 megawatt hours annually.  this saves over 70,000 lbs. of CO2 emissions every year!


saving water

encore ceramic's factory is located on the rogue river in southern oregon.  the thriving local ecosystem has this river at its foundation, and make sure it stays pristine.  their tile factory is the first we’ve ever seen to capture and distill all production waste water – without a single floor drain.

making tile is usually a water-intensive business. by designing their own clay body, glazes, and custom water recycling processes, they save almost half the water consumed in standard tile manufacturing – more than 40,000 gallons of water each year.

pushing physics to the max

they push physics to the max to be as green as possible. their single-fire process saves 40% of the energy typically used to make tile. this is tough to do by any measure, but the gorgeous glazes in their collections make this an incredible feat. their specialty kiln shelves save another 15% electricity.


completely cutting raw waste  

engineered efficiency, way beyond a little recycling. all raw waste is captured in our unusual production process. encore ceramic's custom-designed extra steps to collect all waste clay, glaze, and water, and recycle it until it leaves the building as a finished tile.  for pieces that don’t quite make the cut, their rejects are donated to local schools for at-risk youth, and habitat for humanity.
