Ceramic Handmade Tile Installations

Here is a little secret: a lot of the time I think my customers are more creative than I am. They always manage to install my tiles in new and wonderful ways that I never would have thought of! Take this installation, for example: The homeowners wanted their sophisticated new kitchen to have some earthy, arty, one-of-a-kind features that reflect who they are as people. They came up with the idea to inlay a grouping of art tiles behind the sink. Each tile represents a plant or animal that has meaning in their lives. And because they are fellow Ohioans,...

The tiles in this installation shipped several years ago. I remember this specific order because I thought the tiles came out so nicely that I took a picture and had it printed on promotional postcards which I send out with other tile orders. Since I see the picture of these tiles frequently, I often wondered where they ended up. My curiosity was satisfied last night when these remarkable pictures arrived in my inbox. The homeowners designed and built this staircase themselves, with help from Community Builders of Cedarville, Ca. They also installed tiles on the risers! The lighter colored field tiles...

Oh, how I love customer installation photos! Pictures of this lovely shower just arrived in my inbox and I couldn't be more pleased. The homeowner mixed some of my 2"×2" feature tiles in leaf green glaze with tiles from other manufacturers. Not sure who made the subway tiles, but the green glass tiles are Merola "forest." Love how the stripe of feature tiles is right at eye level!  I wanted to call this set of photos "emerald bath" because the band of green reminds me of an emerald necklace, but the colors are closer to forest green than emerald.  Whatever you...

Getting pictures of this kitchen put a smile on my face. It is always a delight to receive customer installation photos! What a thrill and honor to see the creative ways that people integrate my tiles into their homes. These particular homeowners ordered 4x4 inch maple leaf tiles in autumn glaze, then asked their installer to spread them randomly throughout their kitchen backsplash, as if they were sent fluttering by a gentle fall breeze. The installer suggested turning them in all different directions to really give the feel of leaves in fall. The field tiles are by another Ohio tile company...

My snail and frog tiles aren't usually oriented on the diagonal. For this special request, I modified them once they were out of their molds by cutting off the corners and reattaching them to make a diamond shape. (I promise I usually don't cut corners!) Only about a week after I sent these tiles out, I received these beautiful installation pictures in my inbox: I love the contrast between the black slate field tiles and white cupboards and feature tiles. The lighting in this room must be amazingly good, because these pictures really bring out the detail in the white feature...

If you have ever admired a group of turtles lined up together on a log, then you can probably appreciated this unique tile installation: What are those tiles in a contrasting color above the range? Turtles, of course! The 2"x2" turtles glazed in "pacific blue" add a sweet touch to this serene kitchen. Thank you, S.M. for including my tiles in your project and for sharing pictures!

At first glance, it looks like the homeowners played it safe with the color scheme in this kitchen. It has lovely, neutral colored cabinets, countertops, flooring and backsplash: But look a little closer, and you will see that this kitchen has a colorful secret! The backsplash is sprinkled with an assortment of bright little handmade two inch by two inch tiles featuring leaves and flowers. Here they are before they were installed... ... and here they are after installation: I love how the red tiles pick up on the red knobs of the range. Here are some even closer views...
