"It's a very spontaneous process, with no drawings involved. I go to the clay, and something new just comes out," says Will Mead of his designs for Peace Valley Tile. Wild Roses (eight by eight inches; $64) is a perfect example of his specialty: original, high-relief tile that seems more like sculpture. Tiles are molded, but each piece is hand-painted and glazed, so no two are exactly alike. They work alone as accent pieces, or combined with other flora and fauna motifs. Up to $80 per hand-painted tile. Available through Urban Archeology, 239 East 58th Street, New York; 212-371-4646; fax 212-371-1601.
