about

Handmade Tile is a contemporary guide for ceramic artists and anyone interested in custom tile installations—from making, designing, and decorating to designing your space and installation.

No matter how many years of experience you have as a ceramic artist or how many home-improvement projects you've tackled, nothing prepares you for the unique world of ceramic tile. From concept and design, through firing and installation, ceramic tiling is one of the few places in a home where art is permanently installed as a feature of a room.

In Handmade Tile, Forrest Lesch-Middelton shares everything he's learned as the founder and owner of the custom tile business FLM Ceramics and Tile. From his years as a one-man operation to his current production facility, Forrest has seen it all and helps you every step of the way. Whether you want to make your own tile, or want to use artistic and custom-made tile in your home, this book has everything you need.

Key features of the book include:
  • Making Tile: key tools, rolling, cutting, extruding
  • Decorating: glazes, image transfer, cuerda seca, underglaze, slip
  • Designing Your Space: tile in context, choosing your tile, codes and standards
  • Installation: removing old tile, backing, preparing surfaces, setting, grouting
Galleries and interviews with today's top workings artists in tile round out the package. Featured artists include Allison Bloom, Boris Aldridge, Disc Interiors, PV Tile, and more. 
Forrest Lesch-Middelton is the owner of FLM Ceramics and Tile in Petaluma, CA.

Editorial Reviews

I couldn't be more excited about this book, a tell-all from the master tile maker. I have the privilege of calling Forrest a friend…now I can call him my teacher. In this book, he answered all my questions on how to make tiles.
