Current Announcements

Shalt thou not hope for joy new born again,
Since no grief ever born can ever die
Through changeless change of seasons passing by?
~ William Morris, Earthly Paradise, February


I am about to do a new thing;
now it springs forth, do you not perceive it?
~ Isaiah 43:19

Some tiles and panels have gone down in price. It can cost quite a bit to offer a new tile or panel and I don't even know if there will be interest, so those prices are initially higher. Once I have a process down for that tile, there's little waste and prices can come down. You'll see these changes reflected on the individual product pages.

Web Updates

I am making the gallery, catalog, and product pages more mobile friendly, including a font change so there may be some moments of "What was she thinking?" Several pages have been done. For mobile users, the descriptions should appear closer to the images and be less confusion.



I don't send notification emails because people get enough impersonal emails.

If I have your mailing address, I will send an occasional postcard featuring a tile with an interesting backstory. I intend that these will be pretty enough for bookmarks and not make their way immediately to a landfill.

You can get updates on featured tiles at William Morris Tile as well as on Twitter and Facebook.
