Terra Cotta - colored porcelain subway tiles?

I've been looking without success for "canyon terra cotta" colored subway tiles in porcelain or ceramic for my kitchen backsplash - *not* glass. Any suggestions where I can find them?

The color I want is similar to this:

I have no idea what these colors look like in real life, but perhaps one of these?

Here is a link that might be useful: Perhaps these in russet?

kitchendetective: Thanks a lot for your suggestion!

I had that Solistone tile ( russet) already bookmarked in my Kitchen Folder! It looks darker than what I am aiming for, though :-(. I'm waiting for the sample.

Okay, then, how about this one? It looks dark, but it's called terra cotta. Perhaps it's lighter in real life? They will also do custom colors.

Here is a link that might be useful: Another that I've never seen.

Thanks for that link, kitchendetective. I'd never heard of Sttatus Ceramics before.
That tile is beautiful but still too dark - at least on the web.. which of course does not show the true colors of anything in real life!

Walter zanger makes them I think they are called Spanish Cotto. Very nice looking. Hope this helps.
