tilework example"What I'd like to say, what the world should know is:   Guillermo Ortiz is an excellent tiler, but he is also fun to be around. To get the full GO experience get to know him on the job, of course, get his design ideas, but also get his philosophical ones as well. He may arrive as an unknown tradesman, but will leave as a friend."

"It has been my professional pleasure to have had Wm G Ortiz as a tile craftsman on many of my projects over the past 25 years. Meticulous, caring craftspeople such as he, are the unsung heroes of designers such as myself---putting to reality our visions and ideas. Mr. Ortiz will be an asset because of the skilled application of his craft, and is always a lighthearted, jovial presence on any job."
