You can reach Melissa to discuss tile options.  Project consultation may be done by phone, online or in person by appointment.  There is no obligation to buy, the consultation is free.  If you decide you want to move forward with a project plan, Wickwire Clay Works charges a fee for the design time.  If you continue with the project, that fee will be deducted from your overall project cost.  A deposit is required to start a project and the balance is due when the project is complete.  
Wickwire Clay Works keeps a limited stock of tile.  Custom projects are designed and made to order. Depending on the size of the project and current work load, the turnaround can be from 2 weeks to several months.  

Upcoming Button Making Class: November, 2018 at Yarn Harbor in Duluth, MN.  Check out the details on the Yarn Harbor website.
What is the cost of​ custom tile?
I have an idea that involves tile.  What next?
Depending on the size of the project and the amount of time the chosen design takes, custom handmade tile from Wickwire Clay Works typically starts at $45 sq. ft. (not including installation costs).  Depending on your budget and ideas, installations can include a mix of handmade and commercial tile (or other materials) or exclusively handmade tile.  Contact Melissa with questions or to get more pricing information.
