About Us

Far Ridge Ceramics is a small studio located in Virginia’s beautiful Shenandoah Valley.  We design and produce distinctive handmade ceramic tiles, gift and domestic ceramics and art tile panels.  All of our ceramics are original designs and are made entirely by hand.  Each piece takes several days as it goes from being liquid clay to finished glazed ceramic.  Take a look at our Process/Production sections for pictures and details on how we make our tiles.

To add distinction to the rooms of your house, browse our ever-expanding line of architectural tiles.  Whether you are looking for a graceful border of vines above your kitchen counter or a medieval design framing your fireplace, the artisan-made quality and character of our tiles will please the eye while adding value to your home.  We are happy to work with you to create tiles to suit your needs and are glad to help you make your ideas and dreams a reality.

Enjoy browsing in our gifts and domestic ceramic pages for unique artisan- made selections.  Take a look at our wine bottle coasters,  pet bowls, spoon rests and more.  For your favorite furry friends we have sturdy feeding bowls and water bowls in a rainbow of beautiful colors.

When the mood strikes, we take a little time out from our more practical work, resulting in an assortment of distinctive and unusual ceramic art tile and mosaic panels.  These one-of-a-kind pieces may be seen at various venues – check our art tile panel gallery for dates and places.
