It features locally designed and produced handsculpted art tiles from Antiquity Tile of Hampden, Maine. The tiles were crafted by owners Brad Wiseman and Paul Spaulding. Then each tile was glazed using a proprietary formulation and fired using Antiquity’s wood firing ‘olde world’ process, resulting in unique variations and antique surfaces in each handmade piece. Thank you to installers Kimberly Bassett, Duane Blanchard, and Gabe Poulin for helping our vision become reality.
Our vanity features sea foam glazed sinks and tiles accented with burnt umber sculpted tiles. Your ‘faucets’ feature Persephone, the goddess of spring’s bounty. The sculpted maidens on the posts represent musicians. The vessel sinks are rimmed with laurel leaves, which have long been associated with celebrations. The burnt umber columns, border tiles, and the light fixtures feature acanthus leaves. Acanthus leaves were common on Greek soil and have been chosen for many centuries as decorative elements because of the beauty of the leaves.
Antiquity Tiles have been used throughout the United States, and the world, by folks as well known as Glen Campbell, Nora Roberts, Calvin Klein, Dale Earnhardt, and now the Black Bear Inn.
