Make your dream walls a reality. Tortuga Tile Works will help you through the entire design process. Just give us a direction and dimensions and we will provide layouts and a quote to fit your needs. Artist, LuRu, will create a design that has the most impact for your budget. She will mix and match from our array of products.
Tiles can be shipped individually, mounted on mesh for easy installation of multipart mosaics, or cemented and grouted on concrete board. Tortuga Tile Works does not do installation, but will aid your contractor with instructions and scale diagrams to insure a successful installation.
Tortuga tiles are all hand-made using various mold making techniques. Artist and designer LuRu sculpts the original compositions in low relief to create the patterns. She earned her BFA in ceramics from The Ohio State University and her MFA in sculpture from Louisiana State University. In addition to the regular stock tiles, she is able to customize designs or adapt existing tiles to any given framework.
Tortuga Tile Works creates tiles to suit a variety of different personalities and aims to produce original and unusual tile pieces. Production schedules vary depending on the scope of the project, but every effort is taken to ensure timely fulfillment of all orders. Our artisan tiles are available for retail, wholesale and custom markets.
