Accurately reproducing the classic and precise tilework of pre-war America could only be accomplished with American craftsmanship. Generations of experience and know-how in all phases of tile production has gone into our development of the Subway Ceramics collection. It is our mission to carry on this tile making tradition and prepare future generations to produce and appreciate our uniquely American tile heritage.

Inside and out, this Dublin steakhouse has recreated the authentic period dining experience with their exceptional Heritage tilework. Inspired by renowned New York speakeasies of the prohibition era, The Butcher's Grill is a prime example of a classic Subway Ceramics restaurant.

Our mission at Heritage Tile is to reproduce the original, historically-authentic tilework of pre-war American homes and businesses, and to set a standard for our ceramic tile craft in an effort to preserve our uniquely American tile heritage.

The Heritage Tile of Oak Park studio is a local design resource to homeowners in historic Oak Park and surrounding neighborhoods, and a destination for architects, designers and preservation specialists throughout the Chicago Metro area.

Visitors to the Heritage Tile of Oak Park studio will experience our featured tile brands of Rookwood Pottery, Subway Ceramics, Subway Mosaics and other exclusive and historically authentic tile collections not to be found elsewhere!

The unique character of the period home was often displayed in the form of decorative floor mosaics. Foyers, kitchens and bathroom floors were often the canvas for creative craftsman working with porcelain mosaic tiles in a variety of colors, shapes, and patterns. These mosaics are the personality of the period home, and a personal expression of the homeowner.

Subway Mosaics has reintroduced this lost art, the perfect complement to the historically authentic Subway Ceramics collection of field tile, trims, mouldings and ceramic accessories. Subway Mosaics is a Heritage Tile exclusive, the tile for the times.

The sculptural nature of our Graystone accessory reproductions takes them beyind beyond the simply functional. Used extensively from the early 1920's, our glazed ceramic accessory elements were designed to be either tiled-in (flush) or recessed into the wall.

A highlight of ours for 2011, Subway Ceramics provided the tilework for the preservation of this historic structure in Mason City, Iowa. Rescued from years of neglect, and restored to the architect's original design, the Park Inn is an example of our commitment to preserving our tile heritage.
