An Arts and Crafts Hearth

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.

Thanks, L.S. for including my tiles in your project and for sending photos!
