waterfall trout stream decorative handmade custom ceramic tile shower tiles

wow! this is one of the most amazing ceramic tile trout shower streams that i've created. can you imagine waking up in the morning and stepping into this custom ceramic tile shower? sit on the shower bench amidst a flowing waterfall with ceramic tile trout / fish, lily pads, lotus flowers, and rocks. it's a simple tile design, but has a lot of punch. if you look close, you can even see the unexpected; a set of heron tracks on the water's edge.

i very much enjoy "painting" with my shaped, mosaic, handmade ceramic tiles. and i'm especially fond of the salmon stream ceramic tile backsplashes that i design; mainly because the streams behind our studio used to run wild with salmon.


"i have created well over a 2000 different mosaic designs that can be found worldwide and as you can see from my website, that is 100's of thousands of handmade tiles."

pelicans in flight

i know all of you are probably getting tired of me saying, "wow!" but if the shoe fits. just look at this beautiful beach motif ceramic tile fireplace design in san clemente, california. our client cindy j. doesn't even have to go the beach, she can just gaze at her very own custom, handmade ceramic tile beach scene in her very own living space.

"i just wanted to let you know that our fireplace you designed is the center of attention. i could not be more impressed with the quality of your work and your vision. you articulated with tiles exactly what a beach in san clemente ca would look like. the pelicans in flight , the lobster, the egret, the sea glass, the sand dollars, it is amazing how each piece is so slightly different. a very proud owner of a tiles with styles fireplace." cindy j., san clemente, california.

wow, what a beautiful ceramic tile bathroom floor. it is truly a very zen-like experience to enter this room. the ceramic tile koi in this lily pond bathroom / shower floor match the gorgeous orange quartz countertop...exquisite!

this fully vitrified, decorative ceramic tile floor was definitely a labor of love. my client sandy harris ordered loose ceramic tile koi, lily pads, lily flowers, rocks, and round tiles from tiles with style and integrated them with some additional manufactured tiles to create a mosaic tile masterpiece in her house. major kudos'!

floor ceramic tiles

i've been asked in my own house many times, "is it ok to walk on your floor? the answer is "yes!" they are made from earthenware and porcelain clays. making them extremely strong and fully vitrified. visit my faq's link for more info.

for more sunflower ceramic tile ideas. click this link or the link in the left column.


just look at this lovely ceramic tile leaf rug floor design. my client stacy s. from traverse city, michigan, created this incredible ceramic tile foyer / entry rug floor design with a few square feet of leaf tiles and some manufactured ceramic tiles.

custom ceramic tile leaf rug

when i first opened stacy's email attachment with the picture of her new leaf ceramic tile mosaic rug, i actually thought it was a woven rug. then duh, i realized it was a picture of the ceramic tile leaves that i sent to her for her loose, shaped-leaf / mosaic leaf tile order. i must be working too many hours in the studio. :)

if you look closely you can see the leaf ceramic tile colors blend perfectly with stacy's manufactured tiles, making this a truly customized ceramic tile installation. i accomplished this because stacy visited my ordering link in the right column. it explained exactly what i needed to create the rug ceramic tile design she required for her foyer floor.

kitchen backsplash ceramic tiles

check out these two beautiful kitchen tile backsplashes (studio layout.) the first is a stove area bass tile and bull rush / cattail tile backsplash / back splash. for more pictures, see my bass link.

the b>kitchen ceramic tile backsplash pictures below, feature blue gill fish ceramic tiles, a turtle tile, and crawfish tile. this freshwater fish tile design is a sink backsplash for a kitchen. more pictures can be seen under my blue gill link

most of my tiles need to be seen up close, or in person to see the beautiful colors and textures, just like one of these b>bluegill fish ceramic tiles.

blue gill ceramic tile fish

even the smallest critter needs detail. just like this crawfish shaped ceramic tile. all of my tiles are shaped ceramic tiles, not designs painted on square tiles.


outdoor ceramic tiles

as stated before, all of my decorative, handmade mosaic tiles can virtually be used anywhere. just look at these two unique outdoor ceramic tile koi ponds.

ceramic tile fountain

all of my handmade decorative ceramic tile designs are uniquely designed to each client. i never duplicate any mosaic tile design, so please don't ask! this is functional art, not manufactured tiles. the ceramic tile fountain above features my standard koi ceramic tiles.

remember, i do ship internationally too! this ceramic tile lily pond fountain is located in the united kingdom (uk).

fountain ceramic tiles

when designing outdoor ceramic tile fountains, i like to use wavy water tiles behind the waterfall area in a vertical configuration. this makes the koi ceramic tiles appear to be falling out of a waterfall down into the pond. the koi ceramic tiles used in this ceramic tile fountain are my fancy tail ceramic tile koi fish.

i have a large waterfall planned for an outdoor kitchen ceramic tile design that will go on the tiles with style deck that protrudes off the front of my studio. it will feature 3d tiles.


this kitchen ceramic tile, autumn leaf backsplash is located in japan.

my japanese client, kenneth ishikawa also purchased a koi pond tile border for his bathroom.


shower mosaic ceramic tiles

at tiles with style i make 100% customizable decorative handmade, shaped ceramic tile mosaics. i pride myself on creative collaboration with clients, architects, designers, and contractors.

i take great care during the design process to assure that your designs are never duplicated so that you can be sure that your decorative ceramic tile artwork is a one-of-a-kind masterpiece.

we can create nearly any floral ceramic tiles. below is a hibiscus ceramic tile design with ceramic tile flamingos. see our flowers and flamingo links for more pictures.

each hand made shaped tile is painstakingly crafted using white, red, tan, cream, or marbled medium-fire earthenware and porcelain clays, with bits of nature as their theme. all ceramic tiles are fully vitrified to last for generations to come!

above is a 100% custom, shaped, ceramic tile mosaic lily pond shower floor tile design. what a great way to start off your day. a peaceful oasis at your very feet. you'll never want to leave your shower!

note: if you have neuropathy in your feet, my showers aren't for you. if you don't, they have a fantastic massaging feeling!

this is a matching double-sink area turtle pond ceramic tile floor (studio layout...not grouted). there is also a commode area just outside the shower.

as you can see from the two pictures above, my work really comes to life when grouted.


"oh, my god! i feel like the reveal moment on one of those hgtv programs. you have really created something beautiful! i can't wait to install them and send you the finished results." s. mcgill, delray beach, fl


monochrome ceramic tiles

you can have any combination of mosaic tiles in my ceramic tile designs. that means if you want a frog ceramic tile in your leaf tile kitchen backsplash mosaic tile design, it's yours!

leaf tile back splash

this monochrome, leaf shaped ceramic tile mosaic is a lovely, timeless design that will never go out of style. you can see more of these beautiful creation by clicking the leaves link in the table of contents (toc) to the left and the listings beneath it.

commercial ceramic tiles

lily pond, koi pond ceramic tilestrout stream ceramic tiles

two large, 177 sf, commercial, decorative ceramic tile installations are shown above for the seneca nation in western ny state. each is quite different. the first pond is a ceramic tile lily pond, the second a ceramic tile trout stream. you can see more pictures of these installation by clicking the pictures above, or you can click the links in the table of contents (toc) to the left.


this unique tree of life ceramic tile mosaic consists of a white oak tree. two different clay bases were used to obtain variation in color for the oak leaf tiles. the client want turquoise for the background. owner/artist diane h. holycross of tiles with style, established in 1999, suggested that the client use a turquoise ceramic tile grout to de-emphasis the background and make the tree and rock tiles pop.

all of my shaped - ceramic tiles are hand-rolled and hand-glazed, so that no hand made tile has the appearance of being manufactured. constant attention to detail is placed on design, quality, as well as studio layout, for a completely  planned, professional installation. your best installation is achieved having us layout your masterpiece in the studio using mosaic tile tape / film.


with dog biscuit / bone ceramic tiles, dog paw / track ceramic tiles, and fire hydrant - shaped ceramic tiles you can create a special effect in your kennel, veterinary clinic, dog shower room, or animal shelter, just like the mckamey animal center in chatanooga, tennessee did for their recent renovation.

brochure

�having a background in interior decorating, i wanted a distinctive look for my own bathroom remodel so i turned to the amazing look that diane creates with custom ceramic tiles.

i simply told diane the number of koi fish and lily pads that i needed and sent her the colors that i was working with and she created a look that was unique for my needs!

diane�s talent is amazing, a true artist, each piece had its own detailed look! from start to finish; i couldn�t be more pleased with the ease of the whole transaction.

looking forward to coming up with another project!�
