Tyler Hays Showcases Two Tile Collections at New York City’s BDDW Annex
“We find, dig, screen, and mix wild clay ourselves, with all the minor impurities that come with it.”
Tyler Hays continues to grow his design empire with the launch of the BDDW Annex, a 2,000-square-foot tile showroom and gallery in downtown New York, across the street from his successful furniture atelier. It showcases two ranges: wild clay dug on the site of his Philadelphia studio and clay from Wallowa County, Oregon, that’s part of his more affordable line. The latter’s M. Crow Hexagonal is a rustic collection in mixed tones, while the rectangular BDDW Hand-Painted contemporizes Delftware. All come in matte, satin, or gloss glazes and are suitable for floor or wall applications.
