We’re a team of dreamers, makers, and magicians on a mission of enrichment. At the heart of this mission is our shared passion for the art of tile – we’ve harnessed it to create an environment where creativity and community thrives.
From the studio to the showroom floor, we’re elevating the practice of tilemaking and bringing tile dreams to life. If you find value in the pursuit of this passion, you just might be one of us.
HOW WE WORK
As a team, we’re captivated by the art and science of tile – and it shows. We pour our heart and soul into our craft, transforming earth into tile, glass into glaze, and ancient techniques into modern magic.
Our handcrafted tile is the result of a 12-step process and a team of alchemists who infuse a part of themselves into the work. With each set of hands our tile passes through, an element of artistry is added to the mix, culminating in a product that blends skill, creativity, and, yes, a little bit of magic.

WHERE WE WORK
Our tile studio enriches our craft just as much as our team does. We’ve cultivated an environment that reflects the magical nature of our work. It’s a place where tilemakers can find flow in transforming ribbons of clay into unique shapes, and glazemakers can experiment to find just the right chemistry between the minerals in the clay and the temperature of the kiln.
As makers, there’s a certain amount of grit involved in the work we do. We enjoy getting our hands dirty and collaborating with fellow tile dreamers to explore new approaches to the craft. At Pratt + Larson, creativity flourishes because we take pride in what we do.

The studio is a very creative environment where you can learn various elements of the tilemaking process. I’ve done some kilnwork and I’ve also learned some handpainting techniques that flow into my work. These are skills I wouldn’t have gained anywhere else.”

I really enjoy guiding customers through the showroom and telling them that our tile is made onsite. Behind the curtain there’s an entire team creating this beautiful tile, and by the time they receive it, it’s been shaped by so many hands.”
