Our Mission

Our Mission

Antiquity Tile, founded in 1990, is located in rural Maine on an eighteenth century farmstead. Just like the New England village potter of early America, our artisans are hard working local people with a strong sense of community. Together, we strive for perfection in our work — and in our care for our environment.

For close to 25 years we have thoughtfully designed, carefully crafted, and consciously produced all of our own ceramic art tile right here in Maine. From raw clay to finished art tile — all in house, every step of the way — we work hard to reduce our impact on our environment, continuing to achieve our goal for a low carbon footprint.

We use recycled wood as our main source of heat, to fuel our kilns and fire our ceramic tile at 2500 degrees “white heat” giving our high-fired tile a life expectancy of over 2000 years. We turn our clay and glaze discards back into usable clay and glaze with little or no waste, we buy all our products recycled whenever and wherever possible, and our clay bodies and art glazes are formulated only by us — and fabricated exclusively with American manufacturers, thereby strengthening our national economy.

Antiquity Tile is passionately respectful of its environment, and we seek to help the natural world around us as we engage in our worthwhile work of creating and crafting fine art works of clay for our clients and customers.
