Handmade Tile

No, the mantle isn't made of birch; the handmade subway tiles that surround the feature tiles are in a new glaze called "birch" which I am a bit smitten with at the moment. It is so yummy looking, it reminds me toast. Or maybe a toasted marshmallow? The feature tiles are glazed in "Autumn" which provides a nice contrast with the field tiles and also harmonizes nicely with the woodwork. above: close up of the "Birds on a Branch" set in autumn glaze This fireplace is part of a historic home right here in northeast Ohio, and the installation was...

Really pleased that my tiles are a focal point in this inviting New Jersey living room. One of the homeowners is a shop teacher so he installed the tiles and woodwork himself with great care and precision. He sent a nice note along with the photos that said, "Everything came out the way we wanted and your tiles added a signature touch. We get a lot of compliments." I didn't make the grey field tiles, only the feature tiles. The next 3 photos were taken during the installation process.  Above and below are close ups of the feature tiles before they were grouted. ...

I love a good before and after! Scroll down to see this fireplace before the re-do. Feature tiles are glazed in "autumn." Not sure which company made those lovely field tiles, but I like them.  Such an improvement from the "before:" Thank you S.T. for including my tiles in your project and for taking the time to share photos!

These photos came from a woman who discovered a passion for woodworking in retirement. All three of these pieces look like heirlooms to me. So honored she chose to make my tiles part of them! (She asked to remain anonymous since she doesn't sell any of her work.) Thank you so much, H. for sharing these photos!

We are officially done with 2020, and I don't think anyone is sad to see it end. Thank you all so much for your amazing support during a very challenging year. I am unbelievably fortunate that I was able to stay healthy and employed all year, and connect with so many great people through my work. Really, I can't thank you all enough. I am taking today (mostly) off since it is a holiday, but here are some scenes from my studio from yesterday, the last day of 2020. Above: Tiles drying, and tiles ready to come out of the kiln.  These...

At this point if you order tiles online they will ship out after Christmas, but if you have your heart set on giving an Emu Tile as a Christmas present, there is still an option that might work depending on where you are located.

Doesn't this kitchen seem inviting? It's in a log cabin in the Northeast.  Over the stove, there are two six by six inch "Birds on a Branch" tiles surrounded by two by two inch tiles featuring various plants and animals.  Normally "birds on a branch" is a three tile set; I like how the homeowners mixed it up by making it shorter and adding an assortment of two by twos. Here is a close up of the smaller tiles before they were installed: The woman who lives in this house told me that her father, a second generation tile setter,...
