Art Tile

Is all handmade tile Art Tile?

There could be justification to say that it is, I suppose. Made-by-hand, artisan designed...Yes, I get it. Tile manufacturers are highly skilled craftspeople, and there are lots of beautiful handmade tiles, for sure.

Earlier this week I had a phone interview with Southern Maryland artist, Parran Collery who was both charming and articulate. She told me about her inspiration from nature and how she designed her own unique glazes.

As you can see from the photo, her Eartha Handmade Tiles are eye-candy, and absolutely gorgeous. These tiles are art for the walls, so I don't think there's any question that this handmade tile is Art Tile.

What do you think defines Art Tile?


  1. I saw your interview on Facebook today, which led me to your blog. I have now spent too much time reading your olders posts. They are all great! I love your blog! I hope you don't mind that I linked it from our blog. :)

  2. Hi Steph, Thank you for your comment. I love it that you linked to my blog! As soon as I can figure out how, I'll link back. Those sinks on your blog are fabulous.
