About Aloe Tile
We believe in craftsmanship, artistry, and the quality of our product. We find our inspiration everywhere: in music, people, history, our gardens and even the ocean outside our front door. We blend classic ceramic style, traditional arts and crafts and contemporary design. We put ourselves in every tile we make and we want to help you find yourself in clay.

Where we are and how to find our tile
This limited edition (2016) ornament was inspired by a Mayan temple near Merida, Mexico. Cornelia created the design on paper and built a template to show size, color and layout. Ed then carved it into a clay master. From that master clay template, he made a plaster mold in reverse relief. The raw ornament tiles were made by using that mold, then allowed to dry to leather-like texture. Our artisans then hand-painted each tile in slip clay, following the template, which was then fired again with a clear glaze to create the final tile.
See if you can find the year hidden in the design. It’s in each one of our annual ornaments! (Don’t worry if you don’t see it here … this was one of our harder ones!
