Experience The Benefits of Custom Made Tile

Fired Earth Designs glazed tile will not fade or discolor with age. Made of natural materials, the tiles are easy to clean and extremely durable. Handcrafted tiles are stain resistant as well as dent proof. The environmentally safe tiles maintain room temperature and can hold in the heat of a sunroom or the cool temperature of an air-conditioned room.

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. 

Fired Earth Designs was awarded the Art Enhancer Award for the state of Kansas by the Kansas Art Education Association for 1996-1997.
