Ceramic Tile: Relief tiles

Reviewed by:
Rosemary Thornton
The mother and daughter team of Marie and Delia Tapp and a small staff in Seattle create historic tiles in the manner and style of California tile-maker Ernest Batchelder. A prolific writer and tile designer, Batchelder was highly influential in the Arts & Crafts Movement in the early 1900s.

Working from drawings or photos, Tile Restoration Center will match almost any style, pattern or color in tile. Carved relief tiles range in price from $7 to $300; larger plaques and friezes cost $200 to $320; and fireplace surrounds range from $1,000 to $3,000 (June 2004).
