Reader Service No. 202 Ellen Blakeley Studio In the Elements Collection, Ellen Blakeley interprets earth, air, fire, water, and metal in handmade glass tile. Crafted through an intricate process of repurposing broken tempered glass and layering and painting it to create a flat surface that is then grouted and sealed, these tiles are all made to order. A palette of 45 colors is available, or tiles can be customized. Blakeley is committed to a sustainable design process by using commercial glass from northern California, waterbased grout, low-VOC paints, and minimal epoxy resin to bind elements of the tile.
