Welcome to Galilee Tiles

At Galilee Tiles, we feel that tile work is an art form.

We specialize in hand sculpted low-relief art tiles.

Each design is carved in clay, and then cast in a plaster mold. After the mold cures for a period of approximately two weeks, moist clay is then pressed into the negative form and when released, produces a positive replica of the original tile. After the tile dries, it is placed in the kiln to undergo what is called the " bisque " firing; irreversibly converting the clay into a stone-like material. The tile is then painted,
And placed back in the kiln for a second firing; adhering the color and producing a glass-like surface.

High temperature firing makes Galilee Tiles suitable for both interior and exterior installations, combining function and beauty with lifelong durability.

Our tiles are available in monochrome; emphasizing the sculpted design, or individually hand painted to give you a truly unique work of art.

Along with a large selection of available designs, we offer custom tile designing. Send us a sketch or a favorite picture and we will estimate the cost of your potential tile project.

It takes between 4 - 8 weeks to produce and ship most orders. If we have the requested tiles in stock, shipping time is a matter of days.

We take pride in our work and are committed to producing a beautiful, handcrafted, quality product.
We look forward to working with you.
