Nestled on California’s Central Coast between Los Angeles and San Francisco, NS Ceramic has been a premiere tile source for architects, interior designers, building contractors and homeowners for nearly two decades. Since it’s creation, NS Ceramic has grown into the community’s most respected resource for authentic Spanish Revival, Italian, Arts and Crafts and mosaic tiles. Nola Shepard Stucky, founder and CEO of NS Ceramic, Inc., is a fourth generation native of Santa Barbara and has a profound love for the area and history. Her extensive knowledge of architectural styles, aesthetics, and materials allows her to personally select and offer the highest quality ceramic, stone, metal, and glass tiles for the increasingly diverse architecture of Santa Barbara and its surrounding areas.
NS Ceramic has been awarded the 2009 Santa Barbara Beautiful Award for the Canary Hotel and “Best in Santa Barbara” from the United States Commerce Association. Designs and materials provided by NS Ceramic have appeared in Casa Romantica by Diane Keaton; Dream Homes: Coastal California and Perspectives on Design California by Brian Carabet and John Shand; Tiles, Choosing, Designing and Living with Ceramic Tile by Olivia Bell Buehl; and Tile by Jill Hebers.
