Profile

We started Gothic Tile in 1989 with a desire to coordinate tiles and wood. We specialize in Scultile or sculptured relief tiles as well as all forms of ceramic field tiles.

We still coordinate tiles in wood pieces and carry such items as mirrors, coat racks and tables. Delft painting is used on tiles that go into some tables as well. Richard also makes custom furniture - some of which you can view under Furniture. The furniture is sold from our studio at retail prices plus freight and handling. We would welcome Gallery inquiries. Please contact him for details.

Nobody's shop is ever big enough, but I make do with what I have. My furniture making process actually starts in a lean-to shed behind a building where I have a small sawmill.

I process oak, maple, birch and cherry, then plane it, dry it for a year or two depending on thickness and then proceed with the actual furniture making.

I also buy highly figured and specialty woods that don't grow in Maine. As you can tell from looking through the gallery page I enjoy adapting an older and more classical style of furniture to modern tastes, but I try to be flexible to accommodate my patrons.

I use both modern power tools and modern techniques as well as traditional hand tools and joinery, depending upon what feels most appropriate and promises to last the longest.

I enjoy the challenge of combining wood with marble or our ceramic tiles and using curves, twists, spirals and carving to create a harmonious piece of work.

Please feel free to contact me with your requirements regarding size, shape proportion, type of wood and budget. I try to be accommodating.
