Quick Overview

Mission San Luis Rey de Francia, also known as Mission San Luis Rey or San Luis Rey Mission Church, was founded on June 13, 1798 in coastal Las Californias, in the present day U.S. city of Oceanside in California. The local Quechnajuichom Native American tribe became known as the Luiseño 'Mission Indians', after the Mission's 'Luis'. The current church, built in 1811 is the third church on this location. It is a National Historic Landmark, for its pristine example of a Spanish Mission Church complex.

San Luis Rey de Francia Mission - Hand Painted Art Tile

These ceramic tiles are all our own original art designs which our family has been creating for over 30 years. Each art tile is individually hand painted then "fired" in our kiln to 1800 degrees until the vivid, jewel-like colors emerge for you to enjoy as a painting, or as a useful hot plate. We pride ourselves on our attention to detail with added color nuances that make each tile special.

Our art tiles come in a variety of designs encompassing nature motifs, fish art designs, wildlife ( including many endangered species) and our new Dog Designs among others. The pretty label on the back of each 6"X6" tile conveys the message that these tile designs are hand painted and made in usa. They are truly a "labor of love" for us and we are proud of what we sell.

Our American made, hand crafted original art tiles make great gift ideas because they are a practical gift as well as a beautiful one. They can be used daily as a kitchen tile trivet or as an original art painting to enhance your wall decor.or several of them can be combined together to form a tile mosaic for use as a back splash. They also make a wonderful Wedding gift or birthday present as there is a special design that will fit every occasion. Bottom line they are a wonderful original handmade gift that we have enjoyed making and you will be proud to give.
