Featured Tile Design – Winter 2014
Large Greenman Tile 8 x 8" square
Larger tiles can add wonderful architectural detail to buildings. In this example Ravenstone Tiles created a simple tile installation for a client's new art studio. We used our 8" Green Man tile with plain 2" border tile around it. The surround is accentuated with corner tiles stamped with leafy impressions using a ceramic bisque stamp. It was installed in a front-facing, exterior gable of the studio, grouted, and trimmed out with wood. The overall size of this project is approximately 12" square. The green glaze is 'copper patina'. The tiles are weather-resistant and durable mid-range stoneware, fired to cone 6 in an electric kiln.

us with any questions you may have.
Our mailing address is not a retail store. We welcome visitors to our studio, but
please phone ahead so we know to expect you.
Tile artist Laura Reutter began making
and designing ceramic tiles in 1998. Taking inspiration from
early art pottery companies such as Moravian, Newcomb,
Rookwood, and Grueby, her designs depict nature, with
elements of Art Nouveau as well as Arts & Crafts aesthetic.
Many of our studio's glaze colors are blended by hand, including some unique to Ravenstone Tiles. In keeping with the Craftsman tradition, the majority of
glazes have a matte to satin surface quality, with
subdued colors that enhance the relief carving. Each tile is
hand-made; glazes are likewise
hand-applied, making every tile a unique work of art.
Tiles are custom-made.
Please allow 3 to 4 weeks to fill most orders.
It may take
somewhat longer for large and / or special orders.
