Diane Winters of Winters Tileworks designs makes handcrafted, molded ceramic tiles. With special emphasis on inspiration from the Arts & Crafts Movement, Diane works in a variety of stylistic traditions, with a broad color palette of satin-matte glazes. These artisan-made tiles offer a richness and subtlety that cannot be matched by commercial tile. In addition to an existing range of designs, Diane can also work directly with clients to create a custom installation. Her commission work includes decorative accent and field tiles for use on fireplaces, doorway surrounds, stair risers, kitchens, baths, and as garden embellishments.

Examples of the creations of Winters Tileworks have been featured in publications including Old House Interiors, Style 1900, American Bungalow Style, and also in books about handmade tile. Other prominent examples include installations at Disney's Grand Californian Hotel in Anaheim. Diane is a member of Artistic License, a group of dedicated professional artisans, whose work continues time-honored traditions of crafts for the built environment. The work of Artistic License members promotes the highest standards for period architecture, interiors, and the decorative arts; encompassing restoration, renovation, and newly-interpreted period revival design.

The group acts as a forum for the exchange of information, experiences and skills among its members, as well as a public resource to educate and promote the highest standards for period architecture, interiors, and the decorative arts.
