Beautiful product and great communication and service.
I grew up in a pottery making family. My mother began as a potter when I was just a baby and I have been working with clay and firing kilns since I was young. My Mother went back to school and received her Master's of Fine Arts Degree in Painting from the University of Minnesota and I received my Bachelor's of Fine Arts Degree in Graphic Design from Kansas State University.
In 1992, my Mother and I started a company called Fresh Fish Ceramic Tiles. The very first tiles we made were for her bathroom shower. They are 4x8" Sunfish tiles that are still there to this day. My parents have been showering with those sunfish for over 20 years!
We changed our business name in 2000 to SoMi Tileworks for the area in which we both live and work, South Minneapolis. We now offer over 600 tile designs and have made tiles for thousands of homes all across the United States and a couple homes in Canada. We have worked on tile projects for many hospitals and restaurants as well.
My Mom is now retired from the tile making business but continues to make wonderful things. She works as a painter and sculptor at the moment, but has dabbled in almost every kind of art form. I am continuing on in the tile business and hope to create tile for thousands more homes and business around the world.
Owner, Maker, Designer, Curator
I have been making handmade ceramic tiles for 17 years. I graduated from Kansas State University in 1996 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree and a concentration in Graphic Design. I also grew up in a pottery making family, working with clay.
Accepted payment methods
- Accepts Etsy gift cards

Smaller orders and smaller tiles I will usually ship by priority mail which will take about 2-3 shipping days. I will contact you to let you know when your order ships. Larger tiles and larger orders will ship with FedEx Ground which takes about 2-4 days depending on your location.
I pack all tiles very well with peanuts and bubble wrap. I recycle packing materials as much as I can unless they are unusable. Shipping insurance on all items is included in my shipping costs. If for some reason an item arrives damaged or broken, please save all shipping material and contact me right away. I will file a claim and get a new item out to you as soon as possible. A photo of the damaged item may be required. If an item is lost in shipping, a claim must also be filed for that. I will work on finding the item or replacing the item for you.
I will ship to Canada and overseas, but will need to calculate the shipping cost before you purchase. Please contact me and I can set up a custom item with the correct shipping.
