Ceramic Handmade Tile Installations

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...

This was a big project last summer, and my wonderful client sent fabulous photos as soon as her bathroom was complete in August. I simply cannot live with myself any longer if I don't post them now! As you can see, this remodel created a dramatic transformation: This serene bathroom is located in a lovely cabin which is surrounded by nature on all sides. The homeowner selected plant and animal tiles which reflect the surrounding environment, which meant she ordered one of practically everything in my entire catalog of 4"x4" plant and animal tiles: The feature tiles were interspersed among...

These pictures arrived in my inbox in April of last year! Time to share them at long last. This installation was designed and completed by a lovely couple who lives right here in our neighborhood. The wife found some of my tiles at McKay Bricker Gallery in town, then ordered more from me as a Christmas present for her husband, who then used them to help transform a rather plain fireplace surround into a proper hearth. They even added a mantle to display interesting objects and a family photo. Now the fireplace is an artistic focal point in this appealing...

This hearth is in a 1929 bungalow that is being restored in the Arts & Craft style. The couple who lives there designed and built the mantel (the husband is a woodworker) and also chose, laid out, and and installed the tiles themselves. The results are beautiful and period appropriate.  The birds and trees were made by me (glaze: "autumn"), the field tiles are by "Clay Squared to Infinity" (glaze: "wasabi") Here are the feature tiles before they were installed: On the left if is a 3"x3" chickadee, in the middle is a 6"x6" elm tree, on the right is...

This family wanted to bring some fun and whimsy to their children's bathroom, so they decided to sprinkle an assortment of multicolored animal tiles around the shower. The frog, butterfly, caterpillar, bunny, owl, turtle, chickadee and more are featured. These 2"x2" are great for kids, but they also work just as well for grown ups. Which is good, because kids don't stay kids for long. This is a great way to incorporate some reminders of the natural world into the home.   Thank you so much, S.S., for sending pictures!
