Tile Dreams Do Come True

It began as a boot-strapped operation in our founder's art studio. After working in a handmade tile shop in Minneapolis, MN, and refining her trade in Italy, Mercedes Austin knew it was time to forge her own path to mosaics.

We were a roll-up-your-sleeves, dig-your-hands-in kind of place then, and we continue to be one today. Over our 15-year evolution, we've moved into new digs: a massive, sunlit factory that was previously a military equipment manufacturing space.


Our Team

Our team of tile elves is now 27 humans and two canines strong. In the heart of the newly-revived Northeast Minneapolis arts district, we create custom, hand-made tiles rich in color, texture, and character.
