My Art tiles.

Symmetry tiles are the byproduct of organic clay imprints, recycled glass, and creative innovation. Each tile is hand crafted with aesthetic dualism in mind, the idea that a work of art can be both beautiful and functional. The implementations of our tiles are myriad, everything from kitchen backsplashes, heat plates to beer coasters, tile floors, patios, shower walls, and swimming pools, or maybe you just have a stubborn bit of blank space that just really needs something. What every you need, Symmetry Tile Works is the solution.      

My Process.

My unique style of clay imprinting with a glazed glass fill provides images with a notion of mysterious reminiscence. The same way a fossil might speak of a species long since extinct, My tiles seek to preserve our own fleating moments in time. Every tile is a custom built canvas to each individual clients needs.  Whether you live on a mountain side, near the ocean or the prairie meadows of the Midwest I want you to be able to immortalize your passions in stone.

About the artist.

Every process put into the creation of my unique work is done by hand; from extruding clay slabs to creating the composition and firing the pieces in my propane kiln.  Every surface texture and focal image on the tiles is created by pressing objects into the clay body, utilizing as many natural objects as possible as printing tools. Wild growing flowers, plants, herbs, rocks, seashells, coral and barn board are some of my most common and successful. In addition, I created a collection of wooden, pewter and rubber stamps of flowers, animals and sea-life to achieve the focal images. I have also casted sunflowers and daisies from my neighbour’s beautiful garden with urethane rubber.

After I have produced the clay slabs, pressed a composition and let the tile dry to green ware, I brush our handmade glazes and layer crushed, recycled glass onto the surface of each tile prior to loading the work into the kiln. My tiles are not only unique in their appearance, but also in the world of ceramics itself. Other producers of ceramics fire their wares twice, once to bisque and again after glazing. Eliminating an additional firing and utilizing recycled glass allow me to reduce my impact on the environment.

Throughout the year I can be found selling our work at several art shows and craft fairs, including the Rhode Island Flower Show, The League of NH Craftsmen’s fair at Mount Sunapee,  The Philadelphia Flower show, Boston Flower show, The Big E, New England Open Markets, Anne Arbor State Street fair, Sunfest, Sugarloaf Craftfairs and many more through out the year.!

During the time between the various events I participate in and manning our retail space, I work in local elementary schools with my Artist in Residence programs. During these programs I direct the students in the creation of stunning full wall tile murals. The children get to step into our shoes and learn about every aspect of our process. The mural stays behind as a permanent fixture in the school. I also provide private clients with custom murals, backsplashes and tile installations for their homes.
