Collection: Little Traverse Tileworks

Cora Smith of Little Traverse Tileworks credits the natural surroundings in Northern Michigan with providing much of the inspiration for her work.  After earning a BFA in Photography from Northern Michigan University, Cora moved to the Petoskey area where she learned the craft of making ceramic tiles – eventually developing her own unique style and helping found Little Traverse Tileworks. 

She draws from natural images such as maple leaves, sailboats and local lakes to develop images that resonate in tile.  Cora and her colleagues work in the classic Arts & Crafts style and begin each tile with a design either hand carved in plaster or sculpted in clay developed in Michigan.
