Studio Description:

 

Carol Hegedus, the owner/artist of Handmade Tile Studio, creates handcrafted tiles that are inspired by nature — in the shape of birds, flowers, leaves, insects etc. Each mosaic style art tile is hand cut from soft, high-fire clay. It is then dried, glazed with layers of brilliant colors and kiln-fired several times. Each tile is one-of-a-kind. Due to the nature of handmade ceramics, slight variations in size, color, or accents add to the charm of each piece. These tiles are then used to create mosaics. Carol sells these handmade art tiles to other mosaic artists at local art shows and in the mosaic classes in her studio. Customers and students may come to her monthly Open Studio sessions (with a reservation — forms are available at www.handmadetilestudio.com) or visit her studio after making an appointment.

 

“I love the process of making the tiles and completing a unique mosaic with them. And I also greatly enjoy the pleasure others have when they use my tiles to make their own artwork. The possibilities are endless! My tiles and mosaics are very whimsical — I especially like creating mosaics that offer a rare glimpse into a magical world that we might remember from childhood, fairy tales, or even dreams.”
