Weaver Tile 

Scott Weaver
Horton, Michigan

I started Weaver Tile in 2000 after spending four winters learning the craft of tile making at Pewabic Pottery in Detroit, Michigan. We are a small tile studio located in southern Michigan. We produce high quality, high fire decorative tiles. As you look at this site you will see that our love of gardening, wildflowers and nature has heavily influenced the tile designs.
Most of our tiles are hand pressed in molds that we make from our original sculpted works. We endeavor to produce high quality, highly detailed stoneware tiles. Tiles that will give your home a distinctive and inviting look that you will be proud of for years to come.
Whether you are looking for a custom designed fireplace surround or a decorative accent for your kitchen or bath, we look forward to working with you.

Mizner Industries 

Brenda Jean Lusher  

Fort Lauderdale, Florida

In 1998, Brenda Jean Lusher, an accomplished artisan and long time admirer of Addison Mizner's, affirmed a love and passion for Old World Style by resurrecting the original company "Mizner Industries" and dedicating it to the personal craftsmanship of which Mizner was known.

Mizner Industries is a one-of-a-kind tile studio specializing in custom, hand-painted ceramic tile.

While the emphasis of Mizner Industries is historic tiles brought from Europe to the United States in the early 1900's by renowned architect Addison Mizner, it is perhaps best known for its approach to custom designs and personalized service. The company's extensive library of historic books and photos can supply authentic traditional designs or assist in the development of a tile to meet a customer's individual needs and specifications.

We have also created dozens of new designs in the Arts & Crafts style to complement those historical images that we faithfully reproduce. We pride ourselves on the amount of care and hand work that goes into each and every tile we make, not just for looks, but in the dignified and creative spirit of the early twentieth century.
