Hello...My name is Ken Sekora and as the Chief Operating Officer of Artisan Tile & Marble Co. of New Jersey Inc. I’d like to welcome you to this latest version of our web site.
2022 marked Artisan’s 58th year in business and my personal 37th year in the tile industry.
We’ve created this site for your information education and above all enjoyment. We’re always "Under Construction" so we hope you’ll stop by often.

Congratulations to the Artisan teams for their extraordinary work with Turner Construction @ Mane USA, Plaza Construction @ Newark Gateway Center, KBD-Kajima @ 95 Columbus -Jersey City, LendLease @ Bristol-Myers Squibb Café, and Intech Construction @ Middletown Municipal.
Our artisans will be working on many new projects in the upcoming year including:
We would like to thank some of our great general contractors for their continued support. They include: Turner, Structure Tone, Torcon, Gilbane, Wm. Blanchard, Natoli, Tutor Perini and LendLease Construction.
Artisan Tile & Marble Co.'s work appeared on the cover of a recent issue of 093000 Contractor, and featured our work at the NJ Development Authority Taxation Building in Trenton.
This project featured the use of custom 3D-printed ceramic tiles - a first-of-its-kind installation in the United States.
The Trowel of Excellence, sponsored by the Tile Contractors’ Association of America is designed for union tile contractors as tangible evidence that from estimating to finishing they offer the very best in products and professional installation services.
The first class of Trowel of Excellence certified contractor companies was recognized at the annual TCAA convention in San Francisco. This certification clearly demonstrates that Artisan Tile & Marble has superiority in the marketplace.
In one of the many praises we have received in the past year for exceptional work a recent project completed at Seton Hall University garnered the following:
As we are wrapping up the project I wanted to compliment you and your team on the really nice work. The craftsmanship was outstanding and received numerous compliments from The University’s team. I had the opportunity to meet your foreman Tom (Thomas Arthur Jr.) and some of his team. They put tremendous pride into their work. Tom was particularly proud of the work involving the pirate head just inside the main entrance.
Thank you and we all look forward to working together in the future.

In 2004 John Sekora was awarded the prestigious Carl V. Cesery Award at the 96th annual TCAA convention held in Olympic Valley California at Lake Tahoe. John was the 40th recipient of this prestigious award which recognizes individuals who have served the American tile trade with great distinction.
And he can fire everyone in the company,
from the chairman on down,
spending his money somewhere else.
