Welcome To Elfstone Studio — home of original handmade tile, decorative plates, & wall planters

Orig­i­nal hand­made tile designs inspired by Nature, mythol­ogy, and fairy tales



Elf­s­tone Stu­dio has become known for dis­tinc­tive hand­made tiles and plaques.  The tile-making process begins with bas-relief sculp­ture cre­ated by Susan Meyer. The orig­i­nal sculp­ture designs, inspired by Nature, mythol­ogy, and fairy tales, are repro­duced in stoneware and porce­lain to make the fin­ished hand­made tiles.

Hand­made tiles can be used indoors or outdoors

Elf­s­tone Stu­dio clay tiles are high-fired for beauty and dura­bil­ity.  They stand up well to harsh con­di­tions, and are suit­able for both exte­rior and inte­rior use.  Hand­made tiles can be dis­played as indi­vid­ual art pieces or incor­po­rated into per­ma­nent instal­la­tions such as back­splashes and fire­place sur­rounds.  Mul­ti­ple tiles can be used to cre­ate murals of any size.  Com­mis­sions for mod­i­fi­ca­tions to exist­ing designs or for cus­tom work, from indi­vid­ual tiles to murals, are welcome.
