Terracotta won’t change color for decades

Further customization comes into play through terracotta’s ability to take on different textural finishes. These include adding personality through fine-peeled, peeled, fine-combed, medium-combed, sandblasted and honed finishes. The Liberal Arts Building, at the University of Texas’ Austin campus, is clad in a terracotta that offers the clean, minimal look of limestone at a more attractive cost. The smooth, creamy-colored TERRART Light terracotta features the added design touch of a honed textured finish.
