Joshua Nordstrom is artist/owner of Tierra Tile LLC in Homer Alaska. He is a tile setter of fifteen years, specializing in custom hand-cut mosaic murals and medallions, utilizing all of today’s hot tile trends. He designs, fabricates, and installs hand-crafted mosaics and integrates them into a standard tile installation based on his client’s specific requests and needs. All of his designs are hand drawn for each individual project and never duplicated to ensure a truly one-of-a-kind art installation. His work closely resembles stained glass because every piece is hand cut, labeled, and shaped unlike the traditional mosaic method of broken tile pieces. By working one on one with his clients, he is able to take a vision and create a beautiful piece of functional art that will last forever and set their homes apart from all of the rest. He likes to refer to it as a tattoo for your home. Living on the ocean in Alaska, he find that most of his clients prefer bringing a touch of nature from the outside world into their homes. The local flora, fauna, mountains, and the ocean seem to be the most popular choices. From salmon, to starfish, whales, halibut, seahorses, mermaids, boats, flowers, mountains, trees, birds, octopus, just about anything that can be thought of, it is all possible when you choose to go with Tierra Tile LLC. Although he resides in Alaska, he is always willing to travel and spread his love of tile to anyone around the world who appreciates it .
