Ceramic Jewelry & Tiles
Paula Gill has a background in the arts which includes numerous shows of fine art ceramic tiles, watercolors, printmaking, and pastels, as well as jobs in graphic design, illustration, and calligraphy.
In 1999 Paula started a handmade tile business under the name of Red Step Studio, creating hand carved tiles using a 30 step technique that adds unrivaled depth, texture and liveliness to each tile not replicated by other tile making methods. Each tile carries her signature light hearted exuberance and deep connection to Nature. She has sold her distinctive hand carved tiles at juried arts and craft fairs, trade shows, and selected galleries on the west coast for the past 19 years.
Paula recently introduced a line of "tiny tiles" jewelry: handmade ceramic earrings and pendants. The tools and methods used to make her ceramic jewelry are the same as for making the functional tiles––except these tiles are much smaller!
