products: heron tile

Decorative ceramic bird tile, hand made bird tiles in various ceramic bird designs such as ceramic tile herons, heron tiles, egrets shaped tiles, and more!


One of my favorite large birds is the heron. I think it's the way their long legs gracefully extend off their body when they are in flight, or just their sheer magnificence as they stand regally in a marsh or pond.

Whether it's a mosaic tile sink kitchen back splash, or a stove top ceramic tile backsplash, my heron tile backsplashes add a bit of piece to a chaotic world. Order one today, and get lost in nature, you'll be glad that you did!

Heron, frog, and rainbow trout jumping

This 100% custom, handmade, decorative mosaic tile kitchen backsplash has lots of cattails, three dragon flies, a frog, rainbow trout, and heron shaped tile. It was based on another heron mosaic tile design on this page called, "A look through the window into a marsh" shown later on this page. The round tiles used in the sky area are a double glaze technique that creates a "crackled" tile effect. I also use this technique on our trout shaped tiles to create interest on their backs.

This peaceful, yet colorful heron ceramic tile design is one of our tradeshow booth displays. It's approximately 18" x 24" and would make a lovely stove backsplash. The addition of a sunset / sunrise adds an unexpected surprise to this heron mosaic tile marsh scene.

Great Blue Heron Trinity Memorial Tile Design

This is one of my favorite tile mural and it's mine! This ceramic tile heron / heron tile mural is in my own shower. It contains three ceramic tile herons; one featured heron tile, one flying heron ceramic tile, and one heron tile hiding in ceramic tile water iris' and ceramic tile cattails.

The ceramic tile rocks at the base of this decorative ceramic tile mural protrude out about 1 and 1/2 inches. The four lily pad tiles are actually shelves for a candlelight shower. I love it!

This tile mural contains 1/2" thick wavy ceramic tile. I really like this tile design. It creates a smooth flowing, soft effect that lends itself well to sky, land, or water. The horizontal lines let the eye focus on the main elements in the decorative ceramic tile mural.

Also in this tile mural are two different ceramic tile grout colors. When I design my decorative ceramic tile mosaic, I always take into account the use of ceramic tile grout. It is more important than to just fill in around the tiles. It can make or break a good design.

Notice how the light color grout deemphasizes the pale blue sky tiles at the top of the mural / mosaic tiles, but as the sky tiles become a darker blue, the color of the tiles becomes more apparent.

Look at this beautiful pair of heron ceramic tile mosaics. These two ceramic tile designs are targeted to be used by our very patient client Debra Mitchell in her outer entryway to her home. Each shaped tile was handmade, just like all of our decorative ceramic tiles.

Each heron / marsh / duck cattail ceramic tile mosaic was painstakingly hand painted by artist Diane H. Holycross of Tiles with Style. You can see closeup pictures of the ducks below.

This client had a small area for me to design her heron ceramic tile mosaic. She also had numerous items to fit in her 18" x 21" space. She wanted a heron ceramic tile, red dragonfly tile, a yellow and red butterfly tile, cattail tiles, blue gill tiles, a bass tile, frog ceramic tile, turtle tile, and aquatic plant tiles.

Here is a close up of the small bass tile beneath the shaped ceramic tile heron. It's about 4" in size. For more bass ceramic tiles, click our Bass link.

This jumping bass, shaped ceramic tile has beautiful detailing right down to its fins, gills, and even its body that has tiny fish scales.

This ceramic tile heron mosaic tile design (studio layout) was created for a client in Michigan where cherry trees adorn the landscape. Not only is there one heron tile, but three ceramic tile herons in this mosaic tile creation.

A perfect place for a ceramic tile mosaic...a niche!

A look through a window into the marsh

I really like the simplicity of this heron ceramic tile mosaic. It has one fairly large heron tile nestled in a bed of cattail ceramic tiles in a marsh ceramic tile lily pad setting. If you look closely at this heron mosaic tile design, you can find 5 small ceramic tile dragonflies — 3 in the sky, 1 in the marsh, and 1 in the heron tiles bill.

The picture above shows the detail of a frog ceramic tile in cattail ceramic tiles. The round water tiles are lovely and double fired to get a beautiful texture to the tiles. The ceramic tile heron delicately holds a small dragonfly tile in it's bill.

This is a 30" heron shaped ceramic tile. You can have my heron shaped tiles in any stance or in flight. It' was made in 7 pieces. Water was place at the ankle to simulate the foot beneath water.

A closer look reveals a rainbow trout shaped tile in the herons mouth.

This is a smaller tile shaped heron; about 18" in flight. It's in five pieces.

As you can see by the picture above, we fully customize ANY of our designs to meet your needs. This heron ceramic tile mosaic was made for a client living in Michigan which is known for their cherry trees. The picture is my studio layout, not yet grouted. Once the finished tile mosaic is grouted it really comes to life. Selecting the right color sanded grout or grouts is key to adding depth to the overall ceramic tile design. I recommended that the client use a dark blue grout at the bottom and a pale blue or light gray grout at the top of this decorative ceramic tile creation.

Check out my spiritual website


There is a FREE book on inter-dimensional travel; my twin flame journey to Emmanuel / Immanuel; THE Higher CHRIST Self; Oversoul of Jesus (the spirit; not the physical vessel or man).


There is a BIG difference! He (THE Higher CHRIST Self) is The Way to The Holy Father. You must go through Him to the Father; inter-dimensionally; not in prayer to Jesus; the flesh, from your physical vessel.


You MUST "test the spirits" and SEEK the truths for YOURSELF.


I AM The Wife of the God/Archangel  Emmanuel, and we HAVE reunited during the sacred CHRISTmas Divine Marriage on CHRISTmas morning, 12/25/17, through the Wedding of the Lamb inter-dimensionally; WITHOUT the flesh.


READ the truths from Emmanuel!


"And out of his mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treads the wine press of the ..." Revelation 19:15


He has some VERY harsh words/vernacular for humanity that cut like a knife. Read about them here!


AND, don't be surprised if ALL of your electronic devices start hesitating or "acting up." TIME is literally ending; it is not End Times.
