Whole Tile

Whole tile allows you to create amazing graphics with a realistic dimension on large surface areas. When combined with straight cuts, we can create a skillfully executed piece of art, complete with dramatic gradation and shading.


How it’s done:

·  Submit original CAD drawing, sketch or rendition of the desired image.

·  AO artists create a computer sketch and match colors.

·  AO generates a rendering or proof for approval.

·  Design is dot-mounted and shipped with installation instructions.




The Waterjet method transforms already beautiful tile art into a spectacular masterpiece. High-pressure water cuts or scores your design on any size or type of ceramic tile, natural stone, metal or plastic, as well as various wood products. For added emphasis, you can integrate other materials including brass, copper, aluminum, and wood. Gradation and precision-cut straight or curved lines further give the illusion of blending color and shape, while adding perspective and realistic dimension to the project.
How it’s done:
·  Submit original CAD drawing, sketch or rendition of the desired image.
·  AO artists create a computer sketch, match the color and generate rendering/proof for approval.
·  Rendering is converted to CAD and programmed into Waterjet.
·  Completed designs are shipped to the customer with installation instructions.
·  Color Complements ™
