About Us

Santa Theresa Tile Works was born in 1986 with a desire to create large public art pieces that could be enjoyed for generations.  As more people discovered Santa Theresa-style mosaics, popularity grew with more projects being commissioned for commercial and residential spaces in addition to public art.

After 2 years in a downtown studio, Santa Theresa Tile Works spent 10 years at Susan Gamble’s home, working in her backyard. In 1998, Santa Theresa Tile Works moved into their current location on 6th Ave and 6th Street to increase capacity. This allowed for a showroom space and a larger studio for tile-making. As interest continued, classes with a dedicated classroom space were added and the showroom was refined to better satisfy our customers.
