We are a small Minneapolis company that makes beautiful, timeless, handmade tile with integrity.
We make every tile by hand, because handmade items stand out and draw us in. They ground us in material and their ability to reflect the nuance and humanness of ourselves.
We make tile that won’t just cover a surface, but will live and age with you and your space. Handmade tile has beautiful imperfection that can be embraced and celebrated.
We live in Minnesota where our seasons are dynamic, and the landscape changes often. It is this landscape that inspires the Tess aesthetic. Our glazes are named for places of beauty in our home and neighboring states. These spaces--the fungi, lichen, rocks and flora within their borders have filled us with endless curiosity and appreciation. We strive to capture some of the magic and mood of our outside world and bring it into your home or business.
We offer two clay bodies: a textured sandy white, and a smooth, dark red iron. Our clays are made in Minneapolis. Our glazes are all lead free.
