About

Keeping it SMALL, LOW-TECH & EARTH FRIENDLY

I make my living by making Tile for peoples homes. I've been making handmade tiles and Welcome signs since 2000. I live in the country with lots of trees and wildlife. I'm a self-taught artist with a background in figurative sculpture. I changed to tile making when I made tile for my own kitchen.

Since I love the old Craftsman Bungalows, I decided to make my tiles just for them. I also love trees and plants so It was natural for me to develop a line of tiles that combines woodland images with a Arts & Crafts style. My tiles are designed for fireplaces, kitchens and baths.

People have encouraged me to "grow my business" hire employees and worst of all invest in machinery! I like to keep it small and Low-Tech.
I sculpt the original tiles and then make plaster molds so that I can reproduce them. I press the wet clay into the molds by standing on it. Yes, I know it sounds crazy, but it works! When the tiles are dry I fire them, glaze them (with a brush) and fire them again. I don't use any machines in my tile making except my kilns. When I pack up my tiles to ship I use mostly recycled packing materials. In 2012 I was able to quit my day job, and make tile full time. In 2016 I decided to switch to Local clay and American made glazes. I like interacting with my clients. I love to hear about your projects! People are happy and surprised with the level of customer service I provide. It's easy for me because I actually care what happens to my tiles. I won't be around for ever, but knowing that my tiles are installed in peoples homes gives me a little feeling of immortality. The best thing about keeping it small, is the happy emails, calls and letters that I get from my customers. I don't think this would happen if I had "grown my business". People are really happy with my tiles! It's a good feeling.

Payment
I accept payment in U.S. dollars via direct checkout, Pay-Pal, or Etsy gift cards. If you wish to cancel an order you must do so before it ships. If you cancel before shipment you will receive a full refund. I am in Oregon and there is no sales tax.:-)
Shipping
I generally ship through USPS priority mail. If you need your order to be shipped in a different manner it may effect the shipping cost and you need to send me a conversation with your requirements. 1-3 days is fast enough (I think) . That is why I don't offer a faster shipping option.
Refunds and Exchanges
I have accurate descriptions of my artwork in the title & description for each design. If your order has shipped and you wish to return it I will gladly refund the purchase price upon receipt of the returned items in resalable condition. Shipping costs will not be refunded. If you receive my artwork and it's damaged please contact me immediately and we will take care of it. I want you to be happy with your decision to buy my work.
Additional policies and FAQs
I don't usually do custom work, but if it is just a little change and I think that I can do it, I will . When people ask me to make animal or flower tiles for them I usually try to refer them to another tile artist.
