Hi, I’m Eliana, the maker and designer behind my self-named business, Made By Eliana. I started my ceramics business in 2014 with my product offerings ranging from dinnerware, to home décor to handmade tiles. Everything is made from start to finish by me in my East Austin studio, using clays and glazes that I’ve formulated over the years. I use slab and slip-casting techniques for most of my production, with small batch and slow making in mind.

In 2020, I started to explore handmade tiles by creating clay prototypes with line work patterns carved into them. I designed plaster molds for slip-casting tiles and soon began making samples for project inquiries. Since then, I’ve worked on custom kitchen backsplashes, partnered with interior designers for specific tile projects and collaborated on tiled coffee tables with another maker.

Recently, I have shifted my focus solely on ceramic wall art for the home. I love exploring a variety of surface designs and finding new ways to present ceramic tile shapes. My wall hangings have become a best seller and the product that I enjoy making the most. Each batch that I release features one-of-a-kind pieces inspired by a specific theme.

I believe that the objects we bring to the home and surround ourselves with are important. That’s why I take the time and care to create pieces that will make your home more special, in hopes that you will enjoy each item as much as I have enjoyed making them.
