Sculptured Tiles

Manufacturer: Pomona Tile Manufacturing Co. (Los Angeles, CA)

Two designs for ceramic tiles with bas-relief patterns were created: "Laurel Leaf," a single diagonal leaf motif with alternate raised and recessed areas; and "Athena," a convex and concave version of basic half-round motif. Both designs allowed for a myriad of combinations.
