Ravenstone Tiles will be accepting tile orders through October 15th, 2021. After that we’ll be taking some down time to regroup and reorganize the business, possibly resuming business sometime in early 2022 on a limited basis. If you have orders in progress or questions feel free to contact Laura at 360-379-6951 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you so much!
Tile artist Laura Reutter began making tiles in the 1990's. It started out as a hobby while she worked at a museum as an art conservator for a living. The Indianapolis Art Center provided a friendly environment for taking ceramics classes and exploring techniques and styles. Tile-making followed from her interest in sculpting, carving and decorating surfaces. The artistic output of 19th and 20th century arts-and-crafts era potteries was also a big influence on her style and design.
After a short period of hobby crafting, while developing appealing designs and glazes, Laura decided to start selling her creations. She found a niche market in the craftsman style. Many people looking to restore their bungalows or building new craftsman-type homes were in the market for decorative tile for their kitchens, bathrooms and fireplaces.
With a move to the Pacific Northwest in 1999, Ravenstone Tiles came to life as a home-based tile studio in Port Townsend, Washington. The natural landscapes, seascapes, old growth forests and dramatic mountain ranges have all been big inspirations to our ever-expanding line of art tiles.
