i also have not had much luck finding 1 inch.
my original bath has it. thought it would be a common item.
most i've found have a rustic quality...,except for the black and white.
this was my best find in CA. though a bit too rustic in their colors for me.

few different styles and many colors. would have to see them in person.
some have the 'molten surface'. i was looking for a more opaque, even
surface.

Don't have any idea about pricing on these but I'm guessing it's for the "money is no object" crowd:

Hi, haven't posted for a while, happy holidays everyone! We had an emergency bathroom rehab experience a few months ago, of course it happened a week before we were to have company from out of town staying over at our house. Thanks to Angie's list, we found some great tile guys who would come in with less than a weeks notice and do the tub surround. Ok Great! So we knew we wanted a simple 1 " ceramic tile, either white or a blend. I thought it would not be hard to find in town, in stock, since it used to be such a common item. NOT! It took me forever here in the Twin Cities to find ANY 1" non-glass tile IN STOCK!, but I did it, we went with the non-glazed DAL tile, and it is sort of an off white, with matching grout, came in 12 x24" sheets, and actually was REALLY INEXPENSIVE (I think it ended up being $4.00/foot), and turned out looking very sharp, and IMO somewhat high end (old) modern. GO FIGURE! We went to the Dal tile showroom here in Plymouth MN. I had to go there and bug the people until I found it, but it is sold only to the trade, I worked with our tile guys, they payed for it out of their account, and I went back and picked it up!
The Dal tile has nice enough edges that we didn't need to buy separate "edge" pieces.

It is not glazed but you can put glossy overcoats on top of it (I forgot the name of the product, it's water based and we used it on our old hearth). But I've come to really like the matte look for now.

Good luck with your project, hope you aren't under some big time crunch, it makes the stress level 10 times worse!
