Small tiles, big impact

I hope everyone who celebrates had a great Thanksgiving. My "week of gratitude" lost momentum over the holiday weekend, but I am going to keep working my way though all the wonderful customer installation photos that I have been neglecting to post. This kitchen is in Oregon, and the photos arrived last July. It is now December. Oops! Better late than never, right?

Four 3x3 inch handmade feature tiles create a focal point above the stove in a field of gray, mass-produced tiles. On the other side of the room, behind the sink, a short row of 1x6 inch handmade tiles in gray glaze make a more subtle statement.

These "circles" add  visual interest between the window and sink, without drawing too much attention to themselves. They blend nicely with the gray field tiles.

Thanks, N.B., for taking the time to send pictures of your project, and also for inspiring me to make my octopus design in the 3x3 inch size. That was a long time coming!

I appreciate every one who has shared their installation photos with me. If you sent me photos and I haven't posted them yet, I haven't forgotten! I am hoping to get caught up by the end of the year. As always, if you have any questions, please contact me.
