In all likelihood, my work will never be in a museum, but this feels like the next best thing! I'm thrilled to know that some of my tiles are installed inside "The Royal Exchange" in London, at the swanky new restaurant "The Libertine" which recently opened in the vaults below the landmark, historic building
The current structure was opened by Queen Victoria in 1844, but the original exchange was founded in 1571 on this very spot! Thanks so much to The Libertine for seeking out handmade tiles for this amazing restoration project. There were a wide variety of art tiles used; the ones that I made look like crickets or grasshoppers (take your pick.)
I've never been to London but if I go this will be high on my list of places to visit. Since I am not planning a trip to London in the immediate future, I was really pleased to find this this brief video tour:

The picture of the long table with the tiles in the background is also a re-post from the Libertine's Instagram page, Close up of the grasshopper tiles installed is a screen shot from a promo video for the Libertine, and the remaining photo is one I took myself of the tiles in my studio before they shipped off.
