Custom designed, small batch decorative and art tiles compliment individual tastes and the historic character of any space. Projects include: trivets, wall tiles, and tiles for mantels, kitchens and bathrooms.
All projects are custom designed, hand-made, and glazed to order.
My process combines contemporary fabrication techniques with historic ceramic processes, enabling me to balance precision in design with the beautiful subtleties of hand-made ceramics. Designs are digitally rendered to ensure detail and precision. Models and extruder dies are then resin-printed or laser cut. Art tiles and decorative inset tiles are then pressed by hand in molds cast from these models. Border tiles are extruded by hand through laser-cut dies, then cut to length. Tiles are carefully monitored as they dry. Adjustments made to reduce clay's tendency to warp. They're evaluated individually for quality and consistency at least three time––before their first firing, then again during the glazing process, and for a third time after the glaze firing. Subtle variations in glaze are a desired result of glazing tiles by hand. These subtleties enhance the depth and character of each project.
