L’esperance Tile

L'esperance Tile makes beautiful handmade ceramic tile in their studio near Saratoga Springs, NY.

I designed and modeled several lines of 4X4 and trim tile for L'esperance, which are still available: L'Esperance.  Here are some examples of those designs.

 I've also made many master molds for their tiles, designed and sculpted by owner Linda Ellet.
