Artaic is putting their innovative manufacturing tools to work with the announcement of a new Custom Mosaic On-Demand Program. A response to the global supply chain disruption, the program will take advantage of both technology and materials to be able to create unique, custom mosaics to order for Artaic customers that will result in shorter lead times and less waste in the manufacturing process.
As part of the program, design director Kait Paradowski has selected 15 color palettes based on industry trends and the best performing color stories from Artaic’s own creations. Artaic will then incorporate these colors into their vitreous glass material using their proprietary precision technology, which, according to the company, allows them to produce the exact amount of tile needed for the project, significantly reducing the amount of waste created.
“For this program, using vitreous glass was an obvious choice — not just for its versatility, but it offers a wide range of luxe color and finish options that are easily customizable,” said Kait Paradowski, Artaic’s design director. “For the color stories, we’ve seen earthy tones at the forefront — hues of blues, greens and neutrals — that bring serenity but also spark conversation.”

Through this program, mosaics can be created using a designer’s artistic inspiration or a designer can choose from Artaic’s award winning design collections, including the latest offerings, Lasting Rugs and Flourish.
With the new Custom Mosaic On-Demand Program, Artaic is able to offer:
- Rapid renderings in curated colorways using either custom imagery or collection designs
- Same-day sampling
- Innovative production process for vitreous glass in ½- and ¾-in. sizes
- Inventory on-site in Boston for domestic mosaic manufacturing that’s made to measure
- Individual colors available as quick ship solids or blends in two to four weeks
“In an effort to prepare for this initiative and reach our goal of leading the industry in lead time, we ramped up in sampling, design, and production and acquired additional warehouse space to meet market demand,” said Ted Acworth, CEO and founder of Artaic. “This program will allow designers and specifiers versatility in custom creation and unique designs without sacrificing deadlines to do so.”
