Marie's kitchen backsplash


Atlanta, Georgia


From Derek, July 2011

Dear Jerusalem Tile,
My wife and I purchased the Peacock and Pomegranate backsplash tile and installed it into our remodeled kitchen as the focal point. It is beautiful and timeless, and we have received many compliments over the years. The quality, craftsmanship and artistry was well worth the nominal cost for such art.  Your designer, Hagop Karakashian, has much talent to offer and is an asset to your team and the tile world. Thank you again for the years of enjoyment. I have attached an image of our kitchen of which we are very proud.

From Pam, Canada, July 2009

We received the tiles last week.  I was out of town but my husband picked
them up from the post office.  They are beautiful - all are perfect and not
a single chip or broken tile.  The colours are so much brighter and clearer
than the pictures.  They truly are beautiful.

They will really make the new kitchen come alive and shine.  I am very
pleased with the service and the tiles.  It is amazing how we can get such
service and such pretty tiles for half way around the world.   Thank you so
very much.


From Hagit, Virginia, USA

The tiles have arrived and they are wonderful!While they looked quite beautiful in pictures, the reality is absolutely stunning!We are so glad to have them, and are looking forward to have them incorporated into the house as it is being renovated.   Thank you again so much for bearing with us during the long selection process and for sending them so meticulously and promptly, and of course - for making them!

From Susan, NY, USA

"In April 2004 I ordered two plaques with borders from jerusalempottery.biz . They arrived promptly in the U.S., packed more thoroughly and expertly than any shipment I have ever had."

"The tiles are more vibrant and beautiful than their photos on the internet can portray. They are now up on my wall, the focal point and pride of my newly remodeled bathroom. I would recommend this company and its lovely products to anyone."

From Amanda, the UK , Nov. '05

"Hi There,
Just wanted to let you know that we fitted the tiles and the fireplace looks amazing and that we will be sending you a photo as soon as we can.  Thank you very much.

Best Wishes, Amanda"


From Harriett L. Pease, Glendale, California, Nov. '05

"Hagop Karakashian, or to Whom it may Concern,

The three tiles I ordered arrived today in excellent shape and they are beautiful. Thank you so much for your craftsmanship and the professionalism and speed of processing my order.  I have already hung them in my kitchen.

Sincerely, Harriett L. Pease"


From Susan, Oklahoma, USA

"Just wanted to let you know the Tree of Life mural arrived on Thursday, April 8th. Everything was perfect. It is absolutely gorgeous. I can't wait to have it installed (which won't be until June or July).

Thanks so much -



From Bridget, New Hampshire, USA

"I was looking for a unique gift for my nephew's Bar Mitzvah, and wanted something special direct from Israel--I couldn't be happier with the custom made name plaque, the design and quality are superb. The communication regarding shipment was excellent. It arrived well-packed.

It is a unique way to help someone celebrate this important event; and one that he can keep for ever--to have a bit of his American Heritage blended with his ancestry in such an artistic display is something he can take with him to college, his first apartment, forever.

I have a few Bat/Bar Mitzvah's coming up in the fall, and I will definitely order again.




From Melissa, Iowa, USA

"Mr. Karakashian,

Thank you so very much! The box arrived today, and I am thrilled! The items are so much more beautiful than I ever imagined.

Truly, the photos do not begin to reveal the beauty and superior craftsmanship of your products! And you were so kind to take the time to pack them all so very carefully. To be honest, I wondered how you would be able to get all the pieces here without some breakage. But all arrived in perfect condition due to your careful and thoughtful packing.

Thank you, again, Mr. Karakashian! I have not merely done business with Jerusalem Pottery; I have purchased cherished heirlooms!

Your happy customer,



From Natalie, Texas, USA

"I chose two framed tiles of the carnation floral patterns. I was so impressed with the workmanship and quality for such an affordable price, I ordered more tiles for future gifts, and it will probably won't end there.

The quality and detail show true workmanship, and is affordable. This is great in a day when everything is mass produced.

A very satisfied customer



From Jill Glowniak, California, USA

"Hagop and crew,

The tiles arrived today, hand delivered to my door. They are
spectacular and we cannot wait to have them installed. Thanks again
for taking the time and care to sign the pieces - that takes it over
the top. I'll send photos some time in July/August after the

Kindest regards from California,

The Glowniak Family"


From Dana, Maine, USA

"We received the tiles today, they are BEAUTIFUL! Thanks so much for rushing them to us. We will keep you in mind the next time we need to order. We may want one for the inn's name at the entrance!



From Hugo, CT, USA

Thank you!"


From Julie, USA
