From Concept to Kitchen: a Handmade Tile Mural

I am thrilled to share pictures of this stunning mural in two shades of green that has been expertly installed in a kitchen in Washington state:

It is accompanied by a beautiful row of "honey" glazed 3"×3" tiles under a nearby window:

A vibrant row of red glazed tiles runs around the kitchen. They add a striking contrast and seamlessly tie the entire space together, creating a cohesive and visually appealing design. Here is a closer view of the honey tiles from before they were installed:

The homeowners came up with the layout themselves using images from my website. Here is the initial concept they sent me:

The only thing I ended up modifying slightly, with their approval, was the outer border. Here is the mural just after I shaped it out of soft clay:

Here is one more picture of the tiles right after they came out of the final firing, before I packed them up for shipment:

A huge thank you to E.W. for not only choosing my tiles for your home but also for taking the time to share these wonderful photos with me. Your appreciation for handmade tile and keen eye for detail have truly brought this project to life.
