This beautiful, limited edition, 4-inch HEART tile was designed, hand-made, glazed and fired at the Point Arena Tileworks studio of ceramist and tile maker, Matt Matijczyk of Point Arena, California.
Matt, a Tile Heritage member, is dedicated to the mission of the Tile Heritage Foundation: to preserve and protect ceramic tile traditions in America. He has generously gifted these tiles as an incentive for others to “JOIN IN” and renew or become first time members of the Tile Heritage Foundation!

The tiles are a limited edition - Join THF today and receive a tile! *Joining Tile Heritage at $100 and above provides you with an image of your choice in the THF Member Gallery with an active link to your website and social media!
