About Fay Jones Day Tile
Tile made by a person, not an impersonal company.
I am Fay Jones Day, the artist who makes the tiles that you see on this website. I also make and maintain the website, answer your emails, and pack up the tiles and samples to ship out. My studio is a little cottage surrounded by oak and pines trees, out in the country, in Alpine, Oregon. I live with my husband, artist and illustrator Jonathan Day, and our cat Jennie.
I have always enjoyed making thing with my hands. Clay has been my favorite medium since childhood. In high school I wanted to be a sculptor, but that was to be delayed for almost 20 years. 1989, I got some clay and started teaching myself to make figurative sculpture. While making sculpture, I discovered that I really enjoyed surface decoration, and I changed to making tile in 2000.
Soon after, I was introduced to the Arts and Crafts movement. My daughter asked me to make tiles for her classic Bungalow, and about the same time I was also introduced to American Bungalow Magazine. It has been a long time coming, but I have finally found my niche, in making Arts & Crafts tiles. It I'm very happy to know that my tiles are being permanently installed in people's homes.
One of my tiles is included in Lark Books' 500 Tiles.
I am a member of:
Willamette Ceramics Guild.
