Gregory Hicho's Profile

About

Gianar Tile Creations was created by Gregory Hicho to showcase the art of fine ceramic tiles and mosaics. I'm proud of the time, effort, and attention to detail I give each of my pieces.

About my art tiles:

My art tiles are individually hand-pressed from plaster molds which I have produced from my own unique designs. After molding in a variety of clay bodies, each piece is carefully cleaned, slowly dried, bisque-fired, glazed, and then fired again to cone 04.
Rather than reiterate the historic designs that have gone before me, I’ve tried to incorporate what has been significant in my own era, taking inspiration from the nostalgic themes of my childhood in Indiana during the 1960’s and 70’s - with a wink toward the wistful and whimsical.

I believe that the memories of one’s past, childhood, family, and landscape are often the links that bind us to one another, as perfect strangers will often find commonalities in their individual memories.

My mosaics are absolutely one-of-a-kind, each being hand sculpted and glazed with my own glaze formulas. Each mosaic is mortared onto 1/4" hard board and grouted. Most of the larger pieces are beautifully and thoughtfully framed and ready to hang. You also have the option to mount the art directly within a new interior tile application such as a backsplash or above a fireplace. I'll be happy to provide tips and guidance should you wish to do this.

All of my tiles and mosaics are handmade from start to finish, and I keep very little inventory on hand. Please allow approximately 3 weeks for delivery.


I also operate another Etsy shop for vintage items!
