Custom Decorative Tile

Many of our decorative tile designs are inspired by our surroundings in Northern Michigan. We are fortunate to live in one of America’s most beautiful places and our work often reflects that.custom commemorative tile

One of our specialties is the design and creation of affordable custom commemorative tile. Our custom installation work has included fireplace surrounds, kitchen and bathroom backsplashes, shower surrounds, etc. Basically, if a customer can think it, we can make it a reality in tile.

Classic Tilemaking Techniques

We press all of our tiles using classic methods and molds that have been hand carved or cast from our original designs.  We use clay developed right here in Michigan.  Our tiles are stoneware and thus suited for indoor or outdoor applications.
