WHO ARE WE

Ceramic Concepts makes custom hand-painted tiles. Moorish tiles (Moroccan tiles), Spanish tiles as well as modern tiles are a few of the tile styles that are produced at the studio. Catering to private homes as well as to commercial spaces, Ceramic Concepts brings a touch of beauty to every space.

The Ceramic Concepts studio was established in 1992 and was located at the heart of Venice Beach, California. The rich golden light of Southern California and the relaxed beach lifestyle making it the perfect creative environment.

The Studio played an important role within the Venice community, serving as a venue for children’s education programs such as ‘Dreamteam’, ‘The Arts Mecca’ and ‘Social Point’.

Now the Studio is located in the artsy “inner city” of Los Angeles, in Echo Park where the old and the new meet creating a culture potpourri that is at once enlivening and creatively energetic.

The Ceramic Philosophy

THE PROCESS

Tile art

Clay, the first material human used for daily purposes, became more ornate over time and grew into a cultural expression.

Fire, clay, and mineral are the fundamental tools of a ceramist. Cultural heritage, personal taste, and environment determine color and design.

Daily life at the studio involves a process of tile cutting, design, glazing, and firing.

Daily life at the studio involves a process of tile cutting, design, glazing, and firing.

Man and machine, It has to be done right. Form, shape, and size. Creating a playground for color and design. Diamond blade wet saw. The tile maker’s best friend.

The look and the field, the thin black line. Squeezing through the soft silk. Creating spaces to be filled.
