Artisan Tile

My attraction for ceramic artisan tile began when a sculpting friend and I were trying to learn how to use ceramic glazes for our clay sculptures. A simple need for small glaze sample tiles led me to discover a whole world of clay tile creation. It is an art found in nearly every culture, ancient or modern.

Carving a ceramic tile by hand.

I now create a range of ceramic artisan tile in a variety of designs, glazes, and relief depth. All of my tile is built and glazed by hand—each tile is unique even when it is pressed out of the same plaster mold. Variations in the clay surface and the glaze are to be expected and are an appealing characteristic of hand-built tile.

I also build custom tile murals and installations for specific size areas or unique locations.

Here are some examples of past and present work:
