These is my rainbow trout shaped fish tiles. It has a Green Agate,
green/brown and blue/brown cast to it, with Peppermint Twist sides and Smoke
Gray fins with black backs.
Green Agate with Smoke fins and Peppermint Twist Rainbow Trout dorsal view
The Green Agate ceramic tile glaze, sometimes has a blue cast to it. You
can see it in the picture above. It's a bit unpredictable, but still quite
lovely. The picture below shows some trout tiles in Green Agate with
Peppermint Twist sides, Smoke fins, and Dark Brown Cobblestone backs. I have
these stocked for immediate shipment in 5", 6", 8", and 10" sizes.
The picture of the trout shaped tiles above shows a ceramic tile
design idea. Do you see it? You can cut your trout tails and overlap them to
create more depth in your rock floor installations.
It might be hard to believe, but the trout shaped mosaic / shaped ceramic tiles
shown below are the same glaze as the picture shown above; Green Agate with
Smoke fins. They were fired to a much higher temperature and have a olive green
on their backs. This temperature difference completely changes the color.
Green Agate with Smoke fins and Olive Cobblestone
Another trout species that is popular as a trout tile is the cutthroat
trout. The picture below shows cutthroat trout shaped ceramic tiles.
The backs could be brown and the sides and fins more of a red-tone for an
Trout shaped ceramic tiles are a great design idea for sliced pebble
tiles. There is a vast array of these pebble stone tiles available on the
market. Just search using

The picture below shows a trout stream ceramic tile fireplace hearth that
is laid out in the studio; prior to film mounting. This stone hearth pebble
tiles would have been just another boring, rustic hearth, until the
addition of a small trout stream.
This client opted to have
leaf ceramic tiles inserted into larger pebble stones and have a
stream bead of wavy water tiles, trout tiles, and raccoon track ceramic
tiles. The rock/pebble stone concept saved the client money for this
beautiful hearth installation. See our Cost
Savings Idea for other great ways to stretch your dollars!
EVERY order is 100% CUSTOM. You can have any
size, shaped, and color(s).
A completely different looking rock pebble design idea; a soothing look
and feel by simply changing out the pebble sheets and modifying colors of the
water and trout.
The rock shaped stones above are called "MICRO
PEBBLES." The next time you are wanting a pebble tile design in your
home, consider using micro pebbles sheets.
This studio layout shows just how different our customizations are between
clients. This client opted to have us make the rock ceramic tiles in
their mosaic tiled trout stream. The entire design was based off of a
color swatch of their blue slate. The waters and fish were also done in steel
blue tones to mute the overall look and feel of the stream.
We're hoping for finished installation pictures of this trout stream tiled
shower floor, because there is a bench at one end of the pond with another
pond that overflows down the side of the bench to this shower floor mosaic tile
NOTE: Because I work with "spirit"/angels, in much of my designs, I do NOT
always have control over how the glaze colors come out. The fish shaped tiles
shown above NEVER come out steel blue; they are green. So, if you
decide later that you want more of a specific color, you won't get it. Please
order what you require now!
And here it is...the finished masterpiece!
The handmade ceramic tile rounded rocks matched the customer's field
tiles exactly. By matching the field tiles to our rock tiles makes a
seamless transition into the decorative ceramic tile trout stream.

This is a new trout fish ceramic tile for
2015 called Mint Irish Cream with Smoke fins. I wanted to create a more muted,
realistic trout as it would appear underwater. This one looks wonderful with
many of the sliced pebble, polished pebbles, etc. currently being used for
shower and bathroom floors with stone tiles.
When you are trying to color coordinate your rock, pebble, or stone floors to a
trout shaped mosaic tile, look for a "like" color in the rocks. Based on this
design concept, rock / pebble / stone design ideas for my fish shaped
mosaic tile trout might be:
The sliced pebble tiles on the left would emphasize the fish tiles
slightly, the polished rock tiles on the right would create a subtle,
soothing transition. So, let's say you want to emphasize your trout shaped
fish ceramic tiles. I would suggest using a gold or rust toned
Although these colors would make the fish tiles
"pop," they also create a very soft look and feel to a floor.
The picture below shows Cappuccino Mint freshwater fish trout
tiles. I like this glaze quite a bit because it blends nicely with pebble
stones and other types of stones. By applying the glaze slightly lighter on the
fins makes them a bit brighter in tone and unifies the color of the fish tile.
These trout shaped tiles would look great with sliced pebbles or
pebble tiles like the ones shown below. FYI...these trout tiles in
Cappuccino Mint would look awesome with an olive green Cobblestone on their
The trout shaped tile below is Safari, also with a dark green cobblestone
back. This glaze works nice for trout shaped mosaic tiles or bass
shaped mosaic tiles.
Safari with dark
green cobblestone backs
For a subtle look in pebble rocks or
porcelain tiles, Safari with Olive Cobblestone is the perfect choice.
The pebble tiles shown on the left are called "polished pebble tiles. You can
use any image search engine, like bing images to locate an extensive selection
of these polished pebble tiles. Or click our

right, try searching google images by using the keywords, "PEBBLE
This is a new color that I'm using on trout shaped mosaic tiles. It's
Green Blue. It can be used as a standalone color or the black cobblestone can be
added to the back. It's a neutral color; more on the gray/green/blue tones.
These Blue green, shaped fish tiles would be a nice addition to
gray-toned pebble tiles, or cut stone pebble tiles.

If you are on a tight budget, just a couple of our trout shaped mosaic
ceramic tiles can make a big impact in a rock/pebble floor.
NOTE: for people with neuropathy in their feet
When designing a rock, pebble tile installation, you should take into
consideration your own comfort; not only under your feet, but how the colors
effect your being. Round rock tiles are rougher under your feet, while
the cut / flat rock tiles are smoother if you have any kind of foot
Trout shaped tiles in Pagoda Green, with Gooseberry fins and Brown Cobblestone
New for 2015! These trout shaped mosaic tiles
in Pagoda Green/Gooseberry Green/Brown look nice with nearly any sliced
pebbles, micropebble / micro-pebble, or polished pebble tile floor color. They
have an "olive" cast to the green.
Sliced pebble stone design ideas
The pebble on the left are creamy tones with a hint of gold. These tones
would emphasize the trout-shaped fish tiles on your pebble floor.
The "Apple" green slice pebbles color range runs
between a mint green and light and dark olive tones. This combination will lend
a softer look and feel to your floor; slightly de-emphasizing the fish shaped
The picture below shows a close up view of Moss Agate brown trout ceramic
tiles. The thinner the glaze is applied, the more color comes out; green,
gold, copper, and brown. It it's applied heaver, the Moss Agate makes for a
darker brown trout tile.

A scale texture is pressed into the ceramic tile trout to create a scale effect;
even though trout don't have visible scales.

The ceramic tile trout pictures above are of
a custom decorative trout tile floor. This design consists
of two different colors of brown trout ceramic tiles, wavy water
ceramic tile rocks that match the surrounding field tiles.
There are two different colors of brown trout tiles in this ceramic tile floor:
Moss Agate and Rain Forest with Moss Agate on the fins.
The Moss Agate brown trout tiles shown above are
solid Moss Agate; yet another example of my custom ceramic tile, shaped trout.
These are my favorite! The green/brown trout / fish ceramic tile below is
an excellent choice for our most realist looking trout.
Green Agate with Rare Earth fins and Black Cobblestone backs
The picture above show a close up of our dorsal trout
ceramic tiles. The trout tile have a transparent brown fin,
but like all of our tiles; they are fully customizable. Tan fins also look nice.
The Green Agate shaped trout tiles look fabulous with so
many different colors of rock tile sheets / pebble tile sheets.
Both of these sliced pebble tiles / sliced pebble stones
would give an entirely different stone floor design. The first sliced
pebble rocks would provide a very rich, earthy, rock floor design idea because
of the darker tones. The sliced stone tiles on the right would create a
rock floor design idea that would emphasis the fish shaped tiles.
Now, I want to show you how different changing the fin
color can make on our trout shaped mosaic tiles. Gray fin fish tiles. My

with light green / tan undertones. It's speckled with dark brown splotches
(crystals). A charcoal Cobblestone top coat is applied for added interest on
these trout tiles.
Our most popular decorative, handmade, fully vitrified
ceramic tiles is our dorsal view trout tiles. These
ceramic tile fish can be used in a multitude of design applications. The

Moss Agate and Squash Orange
If you have deep pockets, check out

amazing gemstone installations. Or if you're on a budget, I'd recommend one of
these pebble stone sheets;
tiger pebble tiles.
These brown trout tiles are quite natural in their appearance. The base
coat is Mayco River Bottom. It's a medium brown with tiny dark brown
flecks. They have a dribble of Western Agate Green, then a top coat of
Mayco Black Cobblestone.
The true beauty of our glaze techniques have come from years of experience using
100's of ceramic tile glaze combinations from several manufacturers. The
textures created from these glaze techniques is an added bonus.

This is my interpretation of an 18" brown trout in a ceramic tile. It is
a two-fire technique that utilizes Amaco Crystaltex Chocolate Chip on the
upper part of the trout tile, with a thin band of Mayco Safari
through the middle and on the fins, and
Mayco White Foundation on the bottom part of the ceramic tile trout.
Once applied with these ceramic tile glazes the piece is fired. When finished
and cooled, I apply a coat of Black Cobblestone on the back of the trout and a
custom brown Cobblestone mix on the upper part of the Foundation White glaze and
fire it a 2nd time. This takes four days. The result, a very realistic looking
mosaic ceramic tile trout.
Just look at this close up of our 2011 brown trout
ceramic tile and those rich brown tones and beautiful, delicate texture in
the detail. Even the eye is quite realistic.
Take a look at the close up of these babies...
The addition of the brown cobblestone ceramic tile glaze
makes our tiles unique over other mosaic shaped tiles on the market.

great on our brown trout ceramic tiles, including:

This ceramic tile trout design would be fabulous in
a cabin with a freshwater fish theme. A twist on this design could be a school
of freshwater green trout...
In this example the water is darker towards the bottom of
the design. This design technique can be seen under our

Your top view - dorsal view trout tiles don't have
to be the colors you'd see in nature. These trout ceramic tiles are done
in Tangerine Dream. It's a dark burgundy with flecks of copper.
The intent of this ceramic tile trout color is to
match a copper bathtub.

The Moore's Creek ceramic tile design is very
special to Tiles with Style artist, Diane H. Holycross. It is based on
one of two creeks on her family home's property in Western NY. Here is another
version of this timeless trout stream ceramic tile design.
"When I designed this shower wall, I could have taken the easy way out and
had a border with straight lines. Instead, I cut the Elephant Ear leaf tiles
into the border. It helps unify the entire design."
This is a studio layout showing film mounted mosaic
tiles that are ready for installation in the artists home. This is one of
two shower panels that flank her Dad's new walk-in tub. Look at the detail of
these ceramic tile trout fish. They even have scales.
"I think my Moore's Creek, monochrome, ceramic tile trout stream is even
more beautiful than the color version." "By limiting the colors and going with a
monochrome look, it's true beauty pours out."

Here in Western New York it is not uncommon to see lily ponds with trout. We
have numerous large streams that empty into Lake Ontario. These streams contain
large beds of lily plant vegetation. It's a great place for the trout to hide.
The picture above shows a ceramic tile trout pond in pale blue waters. It
contains frog tiles, dragonfly tiles, lily pad tiles, lotus flower tiles,
trout tiles, and turtle tiles.
Because all of our mosaic tile
designs are fully customizable, you have numerous options. These marsh
marigold ceramic tiles are a great addition to trout stream ceramic tile
designs. These herbaceous perennials are commonly found in marshes, fens,
ditches, wet woodlands, and streams that trout inhabit.

of our shower. It makes for a mystic and river-like
experience each morning!" K. Drewsen, Eagle Idaho
Our client Scott created this beautiful trout tiled shower floor by using
small rocks around his stream along with a slate perimeter. He also purchased
some profile salmon tiles for the walls. This decorative ceramic tile
trout design really makes you feel like you are in your own world. The
water tiles color was based on the blue/moss/green tones of the slate.
