A Graceful Kitchen

It is always a pleasure to receive customer installation pictures! These are a great example of how it is possible to mix handmade feature tiles with field tiles of a different size. Here, handmade 4"x4"s mix happily with 3"x6" subway tiles from another tile company:

The homeowners said that at first they weren't sure about mixing different types of tiles, but they are very happy with how the installation turned out. Their tile setter clearly did a great job.

Above are the "Maple" and "Wildflower" designs, in honey and spearmint glazes, respectively. Below are the "Elm", "Pine", and "Locust" designs. The elm and locust tiles are glazed in "Leaf Green." I think the pine tile is glazed in "Celadon."

One thing I really appreciate about this kitchen is the beautiful greenery outside the window. The tiles pick up on the plant theme nicely.

The tiny potted plant is also pretty sweet. If you have to do dishes, why not do them in a place that makes you smile?

Thank you so much to M. and G. for including my tiles in your lovely home, and for allowing me to share your pictures!
