It’s all about mud.  As fresh and ancient, as simple and mysterious, as fleeting and eternal as mud.  We shape it, embellish it and fire it. The result includes tile, sconces, and more, made by hand and meant to last.  Over nearly 40 years we have developed our own clays and glazes, which we mix ourselves in our studio.  Everything is gas fired, and there is always a subtle difference from one piece to another.

Clayworks sconces are used residentially and commercially all over the  country, often paired with coordinating address tiles and plaques.   Our decorative tiles are naturals for backsplashes, fireplace surrounds and other accents.  Although most of our business is done online and involves shipping sconces and tiles, locals are invited to pick up their orders at our studio and avoid shipping costs.  We also offer a special category of items available only for local pick-up.  These include scuppers, tile tables, mirrors and murals, many of them one-of-a-kind.
