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.
In this corner: "Hemlock"
And In this corner: "White Pine"
In the center: "Dragonfly," "Tree of Life," "Turtle"
In the same home, there is an amazing handcrafted doorway that also makes use of my 4"x4" art tiles in the Autumn Glaze:
In this picture: "Wildflower"
