Installation Details

TerraClad™ panels are made per project specifications in 14 standard through body colors as well as custom colors we develop with your direction. Boston Valley also specializes in developing custom glaze finishes such as the one used on the Wellin Museum project, as well as in conjunction with ceramic artists such as Christine Jetten

Designs can be accepted during the concept phases in almost any file format. Our ARCH Design Lab will then work to rationalize your design with our manufacturing methods and provide feedback for feasibility of construction. A 5-axis CNC router allows us to manufacture prototypes, models and dies to aid in product design.
