About

I live with my family in a small house in a big forest that is next to the University of Connecticut and the beautiful Fenton River Valley. I studied History right here at the University and that lead me to want to create tiles. I think it's because I have a reverence for things that can last for ages. I work as a professional tile installer and have extensive experience with ceramic, stone, and glass. I have often created accent tiles for clients, and many of the pieces in my shop started as a custom piece. As an Artisan who creates Tile from raw materials and then sees the process through until the final tile installation, I have a very unique perspective on the possibilites of ceramic tile.

I enjoy clay and I love to work with my hands.
