Ann Sacks Takes Terra Cotta to a New Level of Sophistication with the Terossa Collection

Ann Sacks launches Terossa, an exclusive terra cotta collection accented with premium stone.



PORTLAND, Ore. (March 21, 2024) – Ann Sacks has launched the Terossa Collection, a revolutionary terra cotta series that is exclusive to Ann Sacks and decoratively incorporates various marbles and limestone to create imaginative designs of visual clarity and classic elegance. The evocative, inlaid designs and complementing plain tile create a platform for imaginative lay-ups. Terossa is a collection that melds traditional materials with an edgy contemporary approach to speak to the tastes of today.

To create Terossa, gifted artisans combine age old art with 21st century technology. The four handcrafted designs incorporate waterjet cut stones of Botticino, Afion Violet, Red Marble, or Red Travertine, then strategically lay them into patterns against fields of terra cotta. The warm multishaded reddish tones and contrasting stone colorations are a sensual, earthy display that can be customized by flipping the decorative patterns or inserting the plain field design. A handworked, antiqued finish heightens Terossa’s rich colorations, bringing forth a deep, rich patina, and gives the collection an authenticity that simmers with Old World character and provenance.

Bespoke by design, each is an individual work-of-art, with no two exactly alike, adding to Terossa’s acquired air:

Ottagono Lancette: The 16”x16” mosaic begins with a simple terra cotta backdrop then laid at each corner with anise-inspired four-point stars cut from a choice of Botticino or Afion Violet marble.

Piramidi: A geometric, complex mosaic, the Piramidi features a 12”x12” surface of light and dark terra cotta triangles, which are joined to form small squares then centered by tiny squares of Afion Violet, Botticino, or Red Marble depending upon pattern selected.

Small Vermiculatum: Employing a mix of light and dark terra cotta for its 12”x12” mosaic, then inlaid in rows of small squares of Afion Violet, Botticino, or Red Marble, Small Vermiculatum features an intricate woven design with engaging surface movement and shifting color.

Quadrati Marsiglia: Elegant, yet with a touch of whimsy, Quadrati Marsiglia’s deep red terra cotta 12”x12” surface is decorated with a diamond or circle at its four points, each cut from a different stone for a visually captivating presentation.

Plain Field: A surface of deep, singular terra cotta is completed in Terossa’s signature antiqued finish to bring forward the stone’s natural colorations. The 12”x12” field tile provides a creative option to the collection, whether selected for a singular wall or floor statement or used to lend contrast with another Terosssa decorative tile for a custom statement.

Ann Sacks Terossa Collection is an excellent choice for all interior wall applications and medium traffic floors. The series is not suggested for freeze/thaw outdoor conditions but is acceptable for more moderate climates depending upon method of installation.
