2.4″ x 14.5″ Handmade Ceramic Tiles


Our handmade 2.4″ x 14.5″ ceramic tiles lend character, artisanal beauty, and global inspiration to any space.  These tiles present the subway tile inspired design in a modern and trendy way, making them popular for walls and backsplashes.  Choose from a palette of colors with a glossy finish and a shiny, reflective sheen.  The tiles are the most environmentally friendly tiles currently on the market as they are made from reclaimed materials and use 100% lead-free glazes.  Pricing is per square foot, assuming 3/16″ grout joints.

This environmentally friendly tile uses over 50% recycled content.  We grind up items like porcelain and used glass to great our clay mix which forms the base tile. Paint is then applied by hand to the clay body. These decorative tiles can be used as a focal point, incorporated into backsplashes and showers.

Noticeable color variation: Variation is an inherent part of handmade tiles.  Color variation can be due to hue, saturation, sheen, or texture.  You may not notice this variation until after the tile has been installed.  Glaze variation ranges from low to high, and this product exhibits high color variation.

While there is potential for an order to have the maximum range of variation, it is also possible your order will be more consistent.  You cannot select your order to have a higher or lower range of variation.  Glaze on trim pieces may exhibit variation.

Finish Specifications: These star and cross tiles have a glossy finish with a shiny, semi-reflective sheen.

Trim:  Trim is not included with this product.  We do offer a full range of Trim Tile options in every color.  Trim tile is handmade to order.

 Frequently Asked Questions
Below are answers to some commonly asked questions

Our tiles can be used for all wall and floor applications, backsplashes, stair risers, fountains, fireplaces, and outdoor areas like barbecue.  Please be aware that tiles with a gloss finish may be slippery for flooring applications.  

All of our ceramic tiles, including our hand-painted tiles, are fired at a very high temperature to ensure the highest  durability and quality which make them suitable for indoor and outdoor applications.  However, our ceramic tiles are suitable for outdoor installations in warmer climates; we do not recommend these tiles for outdoor use in colder climates.  These tiles are frost resistant but not frost proof.

For our handmade tiles, we start with our standard clay bodies as the base.  When you place an order, our once fired tiles are screen-printed with the chosen pattern in wax, and then the glaze colors are applied.  After painting is completed, the tiles are fired and then shipped to you.  You can choose any color for your tiles.  Please be aware that with hand applied glazes, there will be color variation across the field of tiles.

Lead times are project specific, and depend on the time of your order.  Please call us when ready to order, and we will let you know the current lead time.

Yes!   We can make custom colors.  Tiles made with custom colors cost an extra $10/tile.
