A local kitchen with a splash of color

This lovely kitchen is right here in beautiful Kent, Ohio, just around the corner from the elementary school where I first experienced the joy of ceramics!

I realize how lucky I am; not everyone gets to try ceramics in grade school. Thinking about this fact makes me realize that my community began supporting me long before I decided to become a professional artist. This is part of the reason I always vote "yes" for school levies, even though I don't have children of my own.

Most of the tiles I make ship out of state, but I have definitely been making more tiles for folks here in town since the swift tower project was completed. Thank you, Kent!

The homeowner planned the layout herself. The field tiles are travertine limestone. Some of the stone 4"x4"s were replaced with art tiles in a variety of colors and designs.

The client said she is "delighted with the backsplash," and the tile setters enjoyed working with the art tiles. That makes me very happy!

Really feeling the hometown love lately. Thanks, E.E., for including my tiles in your project and for taking the time to send pictures!
