Inspired by New England's past and present

Lilywork's studio is nestled between Mystic CT and Watch Hill RI along the Pawcatuck River in Stonington CT.  The area is rich in history, culture, and natural beauty.  Since the 1600s, this historic region has been a center for important marine industries such as whaling, fishing and, shipbuilding.  Even today, Connecticut's last commercial fishing fleet is based in Stonington CT.  

Drawing inspiration from New England's seafaring past and present, Lilywork Artisan Tile introduces The Mariner Collection.  

The Mariner Collection is hand-crafted.

Every mosaic starts by rolling out a simple sheet of clay.  A hand-drawn map is then used to transfer an impression onto the clay.  Much like a puzzle, pieces are carefully cut apart, and set aside to dry.  Each piece is then glazed, fired, and  assembled.  The mosaic is now ready for installation as a backsplash focal, or as a stand alone tile art piece.
