Please help me identify this tile?!

I love the tile in this photo, specifically the two sizes split by a middle piece and the beautiful color. At first I thought it was glass tile, but the middle piece looks more like porcelain? I'm just not sure. But I love it and want to find it for my bathroom. Any ideas??

It's gorgeous! I hope someone can help you. It looks like it has a slight texture, maybe crackle tile? The texture makes me think it's not glass. I have crackle tile by Walker Zanger on my kitchen backsplash--but I remember the tile salesperson telling my that it was not suitable for a bathroom. Sorry I can't be of any help to you :(
I regularly visit the home decorating and kitchen forums and there are a lot of knowledgeable posters on there who might be able to help you, in case you don't get your answer here. Good luck!

Where were the photos from? If you contact the magazine/website they may be able to tell you, or put you in touch with the deisgner.

I would search Ann Sacks and Complete Tile Collection. They both carry tiles very much like this.

Here's a link to the designers who did the bathroom.

Thank you! I found the designer's Facebook page and asked her. She says it's from Urban Archaeology (link below). She used it to design the master bathroom for the Hamptons Cottages & Gardens Magazine 2006 Idea House. It appears to be a pale blue crackle ceramic tile. Beautiful....

A lot of the stuff in that bathroom is from Urban Archeology.

You're welcome.

FWIW: In case you didn't notice or the designer didn't tell you this, the smaller subs are a different color than the larger subs. One is a blue-gray, the other a green-gray. I was never a fan of the two colors of tile used in that bathroom. Each color is fine on its own, but the two together? I'm not a fan. Personal opinion.
