Welcome to the online home of tile artist and one-woman factory, Emily M. Ulm. When you place an order for handmade tiles though this website, they will be made to order from start to finish by Emily herself. Most orders ship within 30 days or less, but very large or complex orders may take longer. Occasionally, busy periods or other extenuating circumstances can extend lead times, as well. Glaze samples are always in stock and ready to ship.  For more information, please contact the artist.

“Thank you for seeking out handmade tile. I am honored that my work may become part of your home. When, out of a universe of possibilities, you select Emu Tile to display or install, you are more than a customer, you are a collaborator. Designing and making tiles has been my full time job since 2004 and I welcome you to explore my work.” -Emily
