Mary's Maiolica Arts

Painted Ceramics - Tiles

I do a variety of 16th century style tiles.  I create museum reproductions and original designs.  I set my tiles into boxes or trivet frames.  I also do custom tiles for kitchens and bathrooms

The design of the tile on the right is based upon Italian Renaissance traditions of the 15th and 16th centuries. During the Renaissance noble families would commission special ceramic pieces to commemorate weddings.  Historical wedding commissions typically featured holding hands.

Reproduction Tiles

The following tiles were all done using the maiolica technique on commercial terra cotta Italian tiles.
