I do small mosaic custom tiles, many carved, some under 2", others 4" square
with lots of carving, slip trailing, painting, etc...
and charge $325 a square foot. You may think this is incredible, but when I
start counting hours....well it is a reasonable fee for a lot of time! And I
have no problem getting that for my tile work.
If they want custom work, they need to pay custom prices. It is all about
what is your time worth?

I don't think $20 is outragious for a hand made tile, I get $18 for mine
and I don't even make the tile. you can probably look on the web and see
what other people are charging to give you a ball park figure.
