You don't say what kind of ceramic or what shape, or what kind of shock, so it's hard to specify a solution since I'm not sure what the problem is.
That said, all of the solutions you've received so far are good ones. You could also possibly just make a sleeve for the ceramic bit out of an old sock or a nylon stocking, or spandex,

Silicone in a tube works very well for this.

I'd try the plastic dip compounds used to cushion and insulate tool handles. Some hardware stores stock the stuff; it's available under several brand names.

Don't limit yourself to rubber!  Any number of textiles will provide that function as well.  A piece of fabric (synthetic or natural) glued to the tile should hold it together nicely, and on top of that it's thinner, cheaper, easier to use, and likely "greener" as well.
