Making Tiles by Catherine Carroll

Our handmade tile begins with the wet clay and the artists hands. We use a clay that is specially formulated to have the characteristics of workability, strength and color to make beautiful, durable tile. The three elements of artist, clay and design come together for the creation of every tile we make.

I fell in love with these handmade tiles the minute I saw them. Catherine’s creative spirit shines through in the design, the texture, the tone and the luscious creaminess of these beauties. Everyone who comes to our house falls in love with them too! Plus, Catherine’s the perfect blend of creativity and precision, artist and businesswoman. It was a pleasure to work with her.
Amanda Donovan , Client

We wanted something special for the backsplash in our new kitchen, but found that all the tile shops were offering much the same mosaics and subway tile. Black Rocks hand made tiles gave us exactly what we wanted, beauty and distinctive style.

We have worked with Catherine at Black Rock Studio on several custom tile projects. She crafted incredibly beautiful handmade tiles for kitchen back splashes. Catherine is creative, professional and very easy to work with. Her work exceeded our expectations, which in turn meant our clients were extremely happy.
