We really loved working with Cathy. It was such a cooperative effort. She came to us with ideas, suggestions, and creative solutions for our space. She listened, she provided guidance, and she worked with us to make our project successful on every level. She was as delighted with the results as we were. One beautifully tiled wall, and our kitchen feels like a whole new room!
Cathy has been a wonderful artisan to work with on many projects. She is very personable and relates well to clients. They have been very comfortable with her and happy to have her working in their homes. Cathy has extensive knowledge about installing tile and especially loves working with handmade tiles. She has done many remodeling jobs with our tiles and can offer suggestions on design problems. For clients who want to install tiles themselves she can be a consultant and teach them how to do it with her professional help. We have been very pleased to have worked with Cathy and look forward to collaborating with her in the future.

Cathy brought to her work an aesthetic eye for layout and design and a great attention to detail in how she laid out the tiles, set the grout and created a beautiful fireplace that we will enjoy for many years.

Cathy's great sense of pride in her work is evident in the overall quality of the project! She is creative, open minded, precise, deliberate and has a great sense of humor! We love her work; she's an artist! We couldn't be happier with the outcome!
The artistry of Catherine Bryson and Laura McCaul created a delightful backsplash in my kitchen. Cathy carefully planned and installed a selection of Laura's blackware tiles (hand carved designs of birds, flowers, and leaves) among the chosen, neutral background tiles. Cathy's experience in working with artists' tiles was crucial. The presentation of Laura's tiles is very effective. The highlight is the setting above the stove. The backsplash warmly compliments the wooded setting of my home.
Cathy Bryson is a master tile setter. Working alongside her to install my work at the Children's Museum was a privilege. She has a wealth of knowledge and experience with materials and techniques. She has the highest standards.
You are a great resource of knowledge and experience. Without you I would not have been able to do this project. Your help in planning and then reworking the project saved me. I also really appreciate the way you interacted with the customer. You instantly put them at ease.

My daughter and I had no prior tiling experience. Cathy helped us turn our idea into a layout. She advised us on the right products and tools, where to get them and how to use them. At each phase she gave us a lesson. She was available to trouble-shoot. She was willing to do the work (or parts of it) or to teach us how.
We had Cathy do the tile cutting and some tricky edgework. She does beautiful work and is a skilled and patient teacher. We could not have planned or executed this project without her. With her help, we have a beautiful handmade tile wall and fireplace surround. The satisfaction of having done it ourselves (mostly) and it was affordable. It's a win-win-win!!

We are very much do-it-your-selfers and wanted to install our kitchen backsplash ourselves, but we had never before done any tiling. Cathy helped us with measurements, instructed us on tile cutting and proper installation, and checked on our progress along the way. She gave us a great start on one of our favorite projects and we had the satisfaction and pleasure of finishing our job. Hand-made tiles are from SoMi Tileworks of Minneapolis.
