Ceramic Handmade Tile Installations

Tile installation photos! Did I say it feels like Christmas whenever I get customer installation photos? It also feels like my birthday. And that was especially true when I received these lovely photos a couple of days ago, on my actual birthday. It is an especially fun coincidence because this hearth just happens to be decked out in a celebratory pompom garland! The tiles are glazed in watercolor blue, but the color is lighter than usual because the client requested a lighter version, which I was happily able to achieve by applying only a single coat of glaze instead of...

It always feels like Christmas to me when I get customer installation photos, and that is especially true today with these pictures! So glad Santa and Mrs Claus seem to approve of this snowy scene.There is a set of four tree tiles in both corners of this kitchen backsplash. The subtle colors and design layout work very well. Many thanks to H.T. for including my tiles in your kitchen, and for sending these festive photos! I'm so honored that my tiles are part of this stunningly beautiful kitchen.

In all likelihood, my work will never be in a museum, but this feels like the next best thing! I'm thrilled to know that some of my tiles are installed inside "The Royal Exchange" in London, at the swanky new restaurant "The Libertine" which recently opened in the vaults below the landmark, historic building The current structure was opened by Queen Victoria in 1844, but the original exchange was founded in 1571 on this very spot! Thanks so much to The Libertine for seeking out handmade tiles for this amazing restoration project. There were a wide variety of art tiles...

Have I mentioned how much I LOVE customer installation photos? It's so gratifying for me to see where the tiles end up after they leave my studio. A big thank you to S.E. for sending these photos of your "birds on a branch" set in action! Love how it looks with those field tiles! Great job!

This tile installation has become a record a family's history, because every member of this family got to pick out a tile for the hearth! I especially love that the 4 and 5 year old granddaughters carefully selected the mermaid and unicorn tiles. Why not have a few magical creatures in the mix? It totally works! The homeowner told me that whenever they come to visit, they always go to the hearth find "their tile." How sweet! Here is a close up of some of the tiles before they were installed. Quite an assortment! Obviously this is a light-hearted family...

A tiny washroom and spacious kitchen were both thoughtfully refreshed as part of the renovation of this "Craftsman- Victorian" house that was built in Virginia at the turn of the last century. Both rooms kept their historical character while becoming more fun and functional. The addition of bead board and a tiled backsplash enliven the diminutive water closet and provide moisture protection for the walls. I love the energizing hue of the deep gold wainscoting and how it picks up on the color of the cattail tiles over the classic wall mounted sink. The homeowner sweetly commented, "Who ever thought...

Oh, how I love installation pictures! And they are even more fun when they include process photos. This customer got her tiles from River Light Gallery in nearby Peninsula and installed them in her former coach house which she calls "Skyloft." It is a fitting name given those skylights! Looks pretty dreamy to me. Here are the tiles going up: A praying mantis, honeybee, caterpillar and dragonfly each make an appearance in this cheery arrangement.  As you can see, she planned the layout at the gallery before taking them home: Thank you so much, F.R., for including my tiles in...

It is always an honor when a fellow artist chooses my work for their home! Minneapolis painter Sarah Johannsen and I did a partial trade in which she painted a portrait of me and my husband, Darrell, and I made tiles to go behind the range in her kitchen. She selected multiples of the quatrefoil four tile set in honey glaze to harmonize with her sweet vintage home. I love how the tiles look with that retro, yellow floral curtain! Sarah installed the tiles herself and said it turned out exactly how she pictured it beforehand, which is a good thing.  Here...
