Ohio Tiles for an Ohio Kitchen

It is definitely time for me to post some installation photos! To say I have a backlog of beautiful pictures is a bit of an understatement. It always thrills me to get installation pictures in my inbox, but that doesn't necessarily translate into me putting them on the website in a timely fashion. Thank you to everyone who has taken the time to send pictures. They will all appear on the site eventually, starting with this very special installation by fellow Ohioan and small business owner, Catherine S. Vodrey ( OutspokenWomen.org. ) She  She lives in the woods near a creek, and she wanted to get tiles to represent all of the wildlife she sees around her home.

I was able to make many of her local birds and mammals. The lobster tile may seem out of place, but it is so tiny that it really looks more like a crayfish than a lobster anyway, so we agree that still fits the theme. They have the same number of legs!

The ceramic bunny sculpture owl cookie jar by Hall China are so perfect! It is like they were made to go with the tiles.
