Tempest Tileworks produces hand made ceramic tiles that are inspired by antique etchings and patterns from around the world. With over 20 years of experience in the tile industry, Leigh Odell and Andy Morrison founded Tempest Tile works in 2006. Based in Portland, Oregon their company is devoted to green business practices and is always on the look out to use less energy and eliminate toxic processes. Recently they converted to an all water-based glazing process, eliminating hazardous lead from the factory floor.

Tempest Tileworks specializes in interpreting etchings from the 17th, 18th, an 19th century as hand made ceramic tile murals. Images are gathered and culled from European print folios and are transferred onto ceramic tile using a silkscreen process. Color is added later by hand. Create a custom tile mural with Tempest Tileworks.
