I'm Bill Buyok, the primary contributor of Tile Talk & owner of Avente Tile. I started the company in 2003 because I love hand crafted tiles and want to share this with others. Tile is a durable design element; but, it's an object d'art for its creator, installer, designer and owner. Let's share the joy and experience of tile!
