Production & Timing
This is a made-to-order and a tile artisan-studio.
Tile work is made for individual clients, as well as for galleries. I no longer am able to keep tile in stock, so please place an order
from what is available on the website.

If you are ordering with the Studio:
Decorative Tile : generally, tile orders are produced within 8-12 weeks. I do one tile pressing session per month
and then the tiles are let to dry slowly over 6-8 weeks. There are two to three firings with glazing sessions in
Larger orders may take up to 16 weeks.

If the tiles you desire are in stock, then possible to have immediate availability or ship within a week. Most orders
have to be made specifically for the client as the studio no longer keeps tiles in stock.

Shipping Policy
NEW POLICY due to the Covid Pandemic
All orders will now be shipped through the Postal System.
The shipping amount is quoted from Canada Post, for your package specifications (dimension and weight) and location/distance,
with a small charge added for packaging supplies used.

Customs policies to take note of:
*** Please note that any orders over $200 are subject to a brokerage fee as designated by the Post Office. The tiles are duty free
under NAFTA, unless they are installed in a frame in which they become "art work" . Most of the time, customs does not charge
any fee for this, it goes through without much notice.

Any customs brokerage charges designated by the US customs are not covered in the shipping costs.
The Post Office does not offer any insurance forr damage on shipped items that are porcelain or ceramic/glass in nature, only
Loss of package in which there is a $3 per each $100 value.  Therefore the orders are packaged very well, with as much protection
as is necessary to ship across North America and to Europe.

All orders must be inspected within 48 hours of delivery, for damage or inconsistancies in the order, and contact me to discuss any
problems the shipping may have caused. After this time, no returns are accepted.

More Helpful Ordering Information  

If you would like to purchase tiles, you may order directly through the website or you can contact a gallery who is local to you..

We ship throughout North America, as well as to France and England, Italy to Australia.

Colour variation and the hand pressed "look" of the tile (in its edges and thickness) is an inherent part of the tile design and is
desired. The tiles are all hand crafted, and therefore, have variation in edge, size, shape and colour.

All tiles will craze (crackle) over time.  Each tile is unique. For any questions regarding this, please ask before ordering.

If you are ordering tiles to match pre-existing ones, please order sample/colour chip first.

For all orders:
Whomever does your design work, you are responsible for ordering the correct amount of tile. It is suggested that you have an
experienced tile installer visit your site to accurately measure your project and specify the quantities of each type of tile to be
ordered; figure out your grout lines and therefore the number of tiles needed.

Please note:
These tiles are hand-crafted works.
There are variations in size, thickness and edge quality due to the handmade nature of the work.
