about us

these kits are our craft, the mosaics are your art

When you love what you do, you tend to want to share it. Mosaic Candy Shop is the brainchild of Mercedes Austin and the team at Mercury Mosaics. For decades we’ve been leading a handmade tile revival. It’s an art we’ve dedicated ourselves to, yet we still believe that…

artistry and craftsmanship should be accessible to all

We all have the impulse to create: to get hands-on, a little messy, and have something to show for it. That’s what inspires our tile artisans who roll, cut, and paint each ceramic piece by hand. Now you can share in that joy too.

we aren’t the only appreciators of fine hand-craftsmanship

we gotta keep it earth-friendly

After all, the clay for our ceramics is literally the earth itself. 100% of the tile in our kits is upcycled from our Mercury Mosaics misfit tile. It’s stuff we couldn’t use for our main business, but is too special to let go to waste.

Over the past 20+ years, Mercedes has dedicated herself to learning, making, designing, living and creating all things tile. When she realized she needed to make her own handmade tile while funding her art, she founded Mercury Mosaics, producing renowned artisan tile. Mosaic Candy Shop is her latest endeavor, the culmination of a lifelong obsession with tile.
