Chris Gustin

Immersed in the beauty and function of ceramic tile manufacture from a very young age, Gustin has held a lifelong love of the art of ceramics. Gustin started Gustin Ceramics Tile Production in 1996, and now devotes his full time and energies to his studio work and tile production company in South Dartmouth, MA.
