Experience the Beauty
of Custom Made Tiles
My name is Teresa Carpenter and I am passionate about tile! I studied Ceramics and Art History at the University of Kansas, and after graduating I had the good fortune of working for Steve Smith in his ceramic tile studio in Lawrence, KS. I was the primary designer and tile maker at Steve’s studio for three years and had the benefit of being a part of some very exciting artistic tile installations for many very interesting clients before I moved to St. Louis, MO and started my own studio.
For the past eight years I have been busy creating handcrafted tile for both residential settings as well as businesses. I love working with my clients to design custom tile that really reflects the personality that they wish to convey, as well as being an engaging component in the setting of which it is a part. Whether it is greeting you in an entryway or creating a cozy kitchen atmosphere I believe that handmade ceramic tile truly can take functional tile settings to an aesthetically pleasing and artistic level.
