Depending on the size of the project and the amount of time the chosen design takes, custom handmade tile from Wickwire Clay Works ranges from $45 sq. ft. to $150 sq. ft. (not including installation costs). The price per tile or sq. ft. decreases with higher quantities (bigger projects). Seconds (tile that may be blemished beyond fitting into a former project yet still completely functional) and overrun (leftover) tile are available at discounted prices. Contact Melissa with questions or to get more pricing information.

Where can I find work by Wickwire Clay Works?
What is the cost of custom tile?
I have an idea that involves
tile. What next?
You can reach Melissa to discuss tile options by calling or emailing. Project consultation can 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 applied to your overall project cost. A deposit is required to start a project and the balance is due when the project is complete.
The Wickwire Clay Works studio and showroom in Grand Marais, MN is open by appointment or for special events.
What is the turnaround time on custom tile orders?
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.
