Making Tiles



I use the same basic production methods that have been in use over millennia…but with a few modern twists.  Each piece is hand-formed and hand-decorated.

Every piece begins with soft clay.  The clay is sculpted and/or press-molded into shape.  The clay is then dried, sometimes decorated with underglazes, bisque fired, glazed, and fired again to a temperature that vitrifies the clay, making it suitable for both indoor or outdoor use.
 

My work is made from a stoneware claybody and fired to 2260F in an electric kiln.  I run my studio, including my kilns, on wind-generated power which we’re fortunate to be able to buy from our local utility company, helping to integrate my work with my personal commitment to a cleaner environment and smaller carbon footprint.
