I am thrilled to share pictures of this stunning mural in two shades of green that has been expertly installed in a kitchen in Washington state: It is accompanied by a beautiful row of "honey" glazed 3"×3" tiles under a nearby window: A vibrant row of red glazed tiles runs around the kitchen. They add a striking contrast and seamlessly tie the entire space together, creating a cohesive and visually appealing design. Here is a closer view of the honey tiles from before they were installed: The homeowners came up with the layout themselves using images from my website. Here...

I did it again. Beautiful installation pictures showed up in my inbox, I didn't post them right away, and then, somehow, they slipped through the cracks. This hearth belongs to a talented nature photographer in Montana, and as you can tell from the turkeys on the mantle, she sent these to me back in November. Oops! Better late than never, right?  I posted these to my instagram page before posting them here, and people loved how the tiles wrap around the hearth. You can see it really well in this progress photo: Here is another progress photo that shows the...

Today's the day! We are in the "path of totally," so I'm taking today (mostly) off to celebrate the last full solar eclipse over north America for over 20 years! Hoping the clouds part long enough for us the catch a glimpse, but it will still be cool even if it's cloudy.  Big thanks to those who bought all the solar eclipse tiles I made for Troppus Projects in downtown Kent. The tiles in the picture are no longer available. I spent most of the weekend in the studio, and will be shipping out many non-eclipse themed tiles tomorrow. As...

After listening to thousands of hours of podcasts while I work, I am thrilled that I get to be on a podcast about my work! Well, it's actually more like an 11 minute love letter to my hometown, with a little bit of tile talk mixed it. It was a real joy to chat with my friend, Katy Thomas, about our shared love of Kent, Ohio. Katy, your positivity is contagious! Big thanks to Main Street Kent, as well, for producing the aptly named "In Good Company" podcast. https://mainstreetkent.org/discover/in-good-company/The link above will take you to the Main Street Kent website....

Pictures of this gorgeous fireplace just turned up in my mailbox, and I couldn't be happier with how it turned out! That woodwork would be quite impressive by itself and together with the tiles it looks magnificent. Here are some close ups of the different plants and animals featured: What a nice layout- I love the combination of 2x2, 4x4 and 4x8 inch tiles they chose. The client wrote that she "wanted to send the photos to help inspire others to the potential of your beautiful tile. We truly enjoy our fireplace surround it’s everything I’ve wanted." Wow, my customers...

This backsplash is a tile lover's dream! It was four years in the making because it took that long for the homeowner to collect this beautiful array of nautical and ocean themed tiles. It was well worth the wait; this montage is absolutely perfect for a New England home by the sea. I can almost smell the salty air! I'm honored that so many of my tiles are featured here, and I am also happy to see work by some of my tile making friends including Little Traverse Tileworks who made the sailboat, the anchor, and the number 4, and Dana...

2023 was the best year ever for Emu Tile and I can't thank you all enough. However, the post holiday blahs have been worse than usual for me because I woke up on January 1st with a fever and sore throat. Needless to say, I haven't exactly started the new year strong. Fortunately, before I could sink too far into self-pity, these lovely installing photos turned up in my inbox along a nice note: "I ordered some of your beautiful tile for my new house in June '17. Although we moved in June '19, the fireplace & surround were not...

This evening, the last full moon of the year will illuminate the sky, bringing light to what would otherwise be one of the longest, darkest nights of the year. In honor of that big, beautiful moon, I am sharing these installation photos from a local tile installer, Matt, of Rembrandt Tile in Cleveland, Ohio. I am especially pleased to know that this hearth is in Matt's very own house! When a fellow tile professional chooses my work for their home, it feels like a real honor. You can check out some of his other stellar work on his website, https://rembrandttile.com/...
