An Ocean Montage for a Home by the Sea

This backsplash is a tile lover's dream! It was four years in the making because it took that long for the homeowner to collect this beautiful array of nautical and ocean themed tiles. It was well worth the wait; this montage is absolutely perfect for a New England home by the sea. I can almost smell the salty air!

I'm honored that so many of my tiles are featured here, and I am also happy to see work by some of my tile making friends including Little Traverse Tileworks who made the sailboat, the anchor, and the number 4, and Dana of Firecreek Clay, who made the compass tile in the center. If you see another tile you recognize in the mix, let me know, and I'll credit the maker.
