The original collection of handcrafted metal accent tiles
TIMELESS • ELEGANT • BRONZE
Foundry Art tiles are sold through our online shop
Foundry Art tiles are carved by hand, cast in bronze, and
finished to a level of understated refinement.
As the years go by our tiles develop a mellow, natural patina,
earning them the deep beauty that comes only with age.

Foundry Art Cabinet Knobs and Pulls
We believe how your cabinet hardware feels is as important as how it looks.
We put just as much care into designing our knobs as we put into designing our tiles. It is obvious that the front of a knob should delight your eyes, but we think that the back of a knob should delight your fingers, too.
Our knobs are solid so they feel substantial in your hand. They’re designed to leave enough room so your fingers don’t get stuck between the knob and the cabinet, and the backs are carved into a gentle curve so they meet your fingers gracefully. (We even hide a small metal pin in the base of each knob to keep it from becoming crooked.)
Six of our 1×1 inch patterns are available as knobs. In addition, we offer two hand-carved cabinet pulls. All are available in either Traditional Bronze or White Bronze.
Since Foundry Art bronze is so durable, our tiles can be used in virtually any application: on floors and walls, indoors and out, wet and dry. Foundry Art tiles are suitable for use even in the most highly trafficked locations.
- For substrate and adhesive, follow the guidelines of the Tile Council of America. In most applications, epoxy or thinset mortar is suitable.
- Adhesive: to insure a good adhesive bond, roughen the backs of the tiles with coarse sandpaper.
- Spacing: as per designer’s specification
- Grout: you can use either sanded or unsanded grout. In wet applications we recommend epoxy grout. Alternately, dry grout can be mixed with an acrylic additive and then sealed after installation. During final cleanup make sure all grout residue is removed from the recesses of the tiles. No grout release is necessary.
- Cutting: You can cut Foundry Art tiles with any saw suitable for cutting metal. We recommend abrasive metal-cutting blades for use with cutoff and circular saws. If you have just a few cuts to make, you can use a hacksaw.
- Sealing the bronze is not necessary. If a sealer is used on surrounding materials do not let it pool or stand on the surface of the bronze.

- Base of all tiles is approximately 1/4 in thick.
- Height of relief designs varies.
- Variations in size are considered normal.
- Our proprietary casting and finishing process is designed to create random surface pitting and roughness.
- New tiles may appear brighter than showroom samples because samples have begun to develop a patina.
- Some tiles may appear darker than others before they are installed, but during installation grout will polish the tiles and lessen the variation.
