The picture below shows a close up view of Moss Agate brown trout ceramic tiles.
The thinner the glaze is applied, the more color comes out; green, gold, copper,
and brown. It it's applied heaver, the Moss Agate makes for a darker brown
Moss Agate with Brown Fins
A scale texture is pressed into the ceramic tile trout to create a scale effect;
even though trout don't have visible scales.
You can have your trout tiles in ANY color, or combination of colors. The
picture below also utilizes Moss Agate on the fins of this ceramic tile trout
Rain Forest with Moss Agate brown trout ceramic tiles...perfect for your trout
tile shower floor applications.
The ceramic tile trout pictures above
are of a custom decorative trout tile floor. This design
consists of two different colors of brown trout ceramic tiles, wavy water
ceramic tile rocks that match the surrounding field tiles.
There are two different colors of brown trout tiles in this ceramic tile floor:
Moss Agate and Rain Forest with Moss Agate on the fins.
The Moss Agate brown trout tiles shown above are
solid Moss Agate; yet another example of my custom ceramic tile, shaped trout.

This close up picture shows a light brown, almost pink tone
with light green / tan undertones. It's speckled with dark brown splotches
(crystals). A charcoal Cobblestone top coat is applied for added interest on
these trout tiles.
Our most popular decorative, handmade, fully vitrified
ceramic tiles is our dorsal view trout tiles. These
ceramic tile fish can be used in a multitude of design applications. The
picture below shows two, small 6" dorsal view Apache trout tiles.
BEAUTIFUL! More dorsal view / top view ceramic tile trout can be seen throughout
this web page.
Moss Agate and Squash Orange
These brown trout tiles are quite natural in their appearance. The base
coat is Mayco River Bottom. It's a medium brown with tiny dark brown
flecks. They have a dribble of Western Agate Green, then a top coat of
Mayco Black Cobblestone.
The true beauty of our glaze techniques have come from years of experience using
100's of ceramic tile glaze combinations from several manufacturers. The
textures created from these glaze techniques is an added bonus.

Our most beautiful profile trout ceramic tile yet.
This is my interpretation of an 18" brown trout in a ceramic tile. It is
a two-fire technique that utilizes Amaco Crystaltex Chocolate Chip on the
upper part of the trout tile, with a thin band of Mayco Safari
through the middle and on the fins, and
Mayco White Foundation on the bottom part of the ceramic tile trout.
Once applied with these ceramic tile glazes the piece is fired. When finished
and cooled, I apply a coat of Black Cobblestone on the back of the trout and a
custom brown Cobblestone mix on the upper part of the Foundation White glaze and
fire it a 2nd time. This takes four days. The result, a very realistic looking
mosaic ceramic tile trout.
Just look at this close up of our 2011 brown trout
ceramic tile and those rich brown tones and beautiful, delicate texture in
the detail. Even the eye is quite realistic.

This is the dorsal / top view of a 6" brown trout
ceramic tile. It also uses Amaco Chocolate Chip glaze and Mayco Black
Cobblestone. I have another glaze...Desert Tortoise that is very similar in
color, except glossy; the first picture on this page.
We have several other glazes available that would look
great on our brown trout ceramic tiles, including:

This pair of lake trout mosaic tiles are approximately 16' from nose to
tail. They would make a gorgeous kitchen tile backsplash. Take a look at
this prototype design...
This ceramic tile trout design would be fabulous in
a cabin with a freshwater fish theme. A twist on this design could be a school
of freshwater green trout...
In this example the water is darker towards the bottom of
the design. This design technique can be seen under our
Tropical link in many of our tropical reef ceramic tile designs. You
can also see a bass ceramic tile kitchen backsplash
design further down this page.
Your top view - dorsal view trout tiles don't have
to be the colors you'd see in nature. These trout ceramic tiles are done
in Tangerine Dream. It's a dark burgundy with flecks of copper.
The intent of this ceramic tile trout color is to
match a copper bathtub.

The Moore's Creek ceramic tile design is very
special to Tiles with Style artist, Diane H. Holycross. It is based on
one of two creeks on her family home's property in Western NY. Here is another
version of this timeless trout stream ceramic tile design.
"When I designed this shower wall, I could have taken the easy way out and
had a border with straight lines. Instead, I cut the Elephant Ear leaf tiles
into the border. It helps unify the entire design."
This is a studio layout showing film mounted mosaic
tiles that are ready for installation in the artists home. This is one of
two shower panels that flank her Dad's new walk-in tub. Look at the detail of
these ceramic tile trout fish. They even have scales.
"I think my Moore's Creek, monochrome, ceramic tile trout stream is even
more beautiful than the color version." "By limiting the colors and going with a
monochrome look, it's true beauty pours out."

Here in Western New York it is not uncommon to see lily ponds with trout. We
have numerous large streams that empty into Lake Ontario. These streams contain
large beds of lily plant vegetation. It's a great place for the trout to hide.
The picture above shows a ceramic tile trout pond in pale blue waters. It
contains frog tiles, dragonfly tiles, lily pad tiles, lotus flower tiles,
trout tiles, and turtle tiles.
Because all of our mosaic tile
designs are fully customizable, you have numerous options. These marsh
marigold ceramic tiles are a great addition to trout stream ceramic tile
designs. These herbaceous perennials are commonly found in marshes, fens,
ditches, wet woodlands, and streams that trout inhabit.

"Diane, your art / decorative tiles adds such a new dimension to the feeling
of our shower. It makes for a mystic and river-like
experience each morning!" K. Drewsen, Eagle Idaho
Our client Scott created this beautiful trout tiled shower floor by using
small rocks around his stream along with a slate perimeter. He also purchased
some profile salmon tiles for the walls. This decorative ceramic tile
trout design really makes you feel like you are in your own world. The
water tiles color was based on the blue/moss/green tones of the slate.

Golden Trout ceramic tiles
trout - shaped ceramic tile fish / ceramic tile trout are available in a
multitude of colors. The coloration shown to the right is a mottled brown gloss
and is a dorsal view ceramic tile trout. The trout tile shown
below is a brown gloss with white crystals. It reminds me of the trout that
spawn in our creek in Upstate New York.
