Michigan Decorative Ceramic Tile
Our designers and staff are creators of amazing Michigan-made ceramic tile. Specializing in decorative, gift and custom ceramic tile, Tileworks was founded in 2010 with the mission of providing superior quality ceramic tile to the retail industry. Whether it’s souvenir tiles or an entire kitchen backsplash installation, we have done it all. We work in the classic Arts & Crafts style and are co-located with a historic pottery just outside of Petoskey, Michigan where we have over 30 years of experience in creative clay and production. Our tiles are featured in installations and sold through galleries and through selece tile distributors across the U.S.
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.
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.
We also work with reseller and institutional clients to design and produce custom commemorative tiles. These are sold in galleries and by non-profits to be used as awards, corporate promotions, fundraisers, non-profits, etc.
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.
