Repetition with Variation

Over the years, a few very special customers have installed my tiles in their homes, then moved, then ordered more tiles to install in their new homes! This installation belongs to one of those select few who have installed my work at more than one address. I don't seem to have to picture on file of the first installation, but my records tell me the glaze was autumn and the designs were mostly animals. This second installation is mostly plant designs glazed in celadon, with heart tile glazed in white for a focal point.

The celadon glaze looks almost white in contrast with the black stone and metal of the fireplace. The contrast makes the tiles stand out from the other tiles, but also ties them in with the rest of the room.

As you can imagine, repeat customers make me very happy under any circumstances, but it is especially cool when someone decides "take my tiles with them" when they move by choosing to install them again. It is such an honor!

Thank you so much, C.S. for taking the time to send photos, and for letting me know that this was not your first installation! Stories like this mean a lot to me.
