Some are round , some are square. Which one are you?


Some guys wear pink shirts(innovators)

Some guys wear pink shorts(weirdoes)

Some guys where nothing at all.(Hedonistic vacationer) yeah you


We the people are never ending with expression.

Sometimes we choose

Sometimes we react instinctively

My favorite is when it just happens and you have no choice, but you love the outcome.

Like “Creative Roulette”, Russian and non Russian (that’s a good title)


So you’re fixing your home or you are moving into a new home.

Maybe you’re designing the next new thing, so what are you going to do?


Some are round, some are square, which one are you?


When I hear myself reading this, it makes me think of all the different birds in the world and all their different environments.

The Toucan in the jungle

The pigeon living under the beach pier

The peacock terrorizing homes in La Canada

The hummingbird traveling distances no man can comprehend just to stick its nose in a sweet flower.

They are all different sizes and shapes and they all had no choice about it, but all are very beautiful.


You want another example?

No I don’t, thank you.

I didn’t ask you.


Look, look closer, come’on, you see my big and crooked Armenian nose?


Arto tells a story …..about how once when he was slam-dunking his nose got caught up on the basket’s rim.  This story made a little more sense as I grew older and kids in the park would say “Air Vod” or ask for my shoes or autograph. I didn’t know what to do.  I just came to the park to play a simple game that I love. I can’t help it, if everybody wants my shoes my clothes my brick. I love the game and that love is reward enough. Oh yeah don’t worry the invoice is in the mail.


So where are we?

Yes…… some are square, some are round, which one are you?


Arto makes almost every shape out of concrete you can think of.

At least the sizes and shapes that our backs allow us to make.


Arto makes almost every color you can think of.

At least the colors that God’s lighting intended for us to see without technical assistance.


I like bright colors but some days I wear  black and it gives me another spirit through out the day. A bright colored shirt or a happy pattern is a great way to start the day but is it a great way to start your room?


The other day I had a dream and you were in it. You were asking me if the 8×8 Artillo Sonora Sunset was ok for your kitchen. In my dream I said “let us make you a sample, you can take it home and decide with your whole family”.  It was not only a dream but that’s what Arto does, we will make samples for your convenience and we want to be part of your dreams, just the good ones.


Some are Round Some are Square which one are you?


Since Arto makes almost any imaginable shape, size and color you can feel free to express yourself. One of my favorite things is to do California historical reproductions. I love the concrete medium and I love California it’s an honor to be part of any project.(easy money)


I also love when a client asks for something that pushes the envelope. Not the envelope under the door when I leave home and it says I won’t be back, but the envelope that says you haven’t thought of this before why don’t you give it the ol’ Gipper try and I do. Not  because I like Notre Dame football but because I like a good challenge and  I am a product of 1980’s politics.


Arto is your means for expression.

Arto is your source for developing your unique designs.

Arto has been producing fine handcrafted products his whole life and recently in 1966 he brought it to the American public in the form of ceramics and concrete products.


So some are square and some are round.

Which one are YOU!!??







Shes A Rainbow

Tiles come in colors from everywhere.

They are bright or dull like glass or shell

Colors are the temperature of our days

Some come in gold, some are pail as bone or snow


I’ve seen the years go by and colors come and go

When I was a child I chose my flavor by the color

Blues and Reds Sweeter than the others


Old and mature browns and beige

Savory colors flavor my wheel

Life keeps spinning around

but when

do we stop

to see the amazing colors?


There are colors in a can

There are colors in the crayoned hand

There are colors in the sky and there are colors in sand

There are colors toasted from land to hand

And colors boasted like Kings of Siam

Colors are copied from rural to urban

Carbon is the color of life from beginning to end

from asphalt to land


When a person goes from youth to man

From Mexico to Japan

The colors he puts in his home are reflections of the creature’s soul


Colors are petty, colors are grand

Colors impose emotion and others can provoke a patriotic notion


God paints a rainbow and man tries to paint God’s hand

Patterns and contrast like lines through the fall

Winter comes and paints the spring to amaze us all

When travels end and glory felt

To recreate the experience we make

A home in the home

A retreat on our land

Which colors do you choose?

Which experience have you made?


Oh what a nice surprise to see you here…We have been expecting you!!!!

  • Im a contractor-can I buy your product direct?

    • We no not sell direct. You can find an ARTO Reseller in your area HERE or speak with an ARTO Sales Rep. Thanks for the comment.

  • What size are the circle in the Granada Pattern?

    • The Dots Are 3″ 1/4
      Do you need a sample?

  • Just wanted to let you know that we recently sold our SoCal home, where the floor of the kitchen and adjacent eating area was done a few years ago in Arto Antik brick. EVERYONE who attended our open houses raved about how beautiful this floor is, and we’re sure it helped markedly in maximizing the beauty of our home and enhancing its selling price. Now we’re looking forward to putting your Artillo pavers into our new home! Thanks for making such great products at such affordable prices!

    • Thanks for the comment and we are looking forward to you placing an order with us. Have you seen our new products? Do you have any pictures of your home you would like to share? Look us up on Facebook or email pictures. Thanks again!

  • Hello Arto,

    We are custom residential architects in Northern CA and have a client who is very interested in using your concrete tile on their porches – open and enclosed porches (screened).

    Please send us some small samples in the 4 x 4 (or larger) for ease of shipping in the Normandy Cream color mix, as well as the Tuscan Mustard. I’d like to do a 12″ x 12″ square (min.) if you send the 4 X 4 size so I/we can see the range.

    We love the limestone texture, but if none is on hand the smooth finish is fine at this time as we develop the interior palette. Perhaps send another color of the limestone if not available in the right color.

    Let me know what you can send us and how.

    Very much appreciated. We have used your product before in the rectangular shape (darker red) and had great success with it. Looked fabulous and client loves it.

    Regards, Diana

    • Thanks for the Question and Comment Diana. An ARTO Sales rep will contact you.
