Looking For Bathroom Design Ideas?
Why not start with this artistic, handcrafted tile backsplash? The rest of your bathroom design will fall into place when you invest in these tiles. The beautiful Caribbean Turquoise, or Deep Blue glaze will create a focal point for all of your bathroom remodel ideas to be built around.
These tiles, while contemporary in design, are made using authentic and traditional techniques used by Arts and Crafts Tilers in the late 18800's and early 1900's. Each tile is made by hand in our small artisan studio in Missoula, Montana. We start by embossing a very subtle texture into the wet porcelain clay, that varies in depth up the 1/8". The texture is then flooded with a tinted color glaze, which when fired, pools in the recesses and recedes from the edges, leaving behind a subtle pattern in the surface of the tile.
The tiles seam together, edge to edge, to create a continuous image of a peaceful stretch of open water. Paired with our matching color Border and Field Tile, these decorative patterned tiles can be tailored to fit your bathroom design ideas. For small bathroom remodels, look at the smaller 6" x 10" version of this tile.
Framed with beautiful dark ash wood frame, these animal tiles will fit with any home decor, from traditional to contemporary in design. The crisp black and white graphics are created from original woodblock carvings by David Regan. Look closely, and you'll notice details that the artist has included, such as the eyes of would be deer hunters, hidden in the leaves of the tree. These graphics are rendered in fired on glaze, making the tiles both durable and beautiful. Perfect both for wall hanging and trivet use

This is an authentic process, no gimmicks, the texture is actually sculpted into the tiles! The lush green glaze, which is mixed in-house from our own original glaze recipe, is made from completely natural materials , such as feldspar and copper, which creates the beautiful, deep glaze surface. Our biophilic glaze colors are imbued with the natural colors of nature because they are mixed from natural ingredients!

When assembled in a subway pattern, the individual reeds interlock on all four sides, creating the illusion of a thatched wall of grass.

Run your fingers along the smooth surface of this art tile and you will feel the underlying texture. Size, 7" x 12", never needs watering!
