Wood and tile, that is!  Especially tile that is glazed it our most popular glaze, Autumn.  Here are some examples of tiles inlaid in natural woodwork in a variety of settings.  First up, a lovely hearth.

The homeowner incorporated five of my 4"x4" art tiles into his hand built fireplace surround.
