Ceramic Handmade Tile Installations

Here we are, one week into 2015. As I write this, the wind chill outside is negative 11 F, but the days are getting longer and that makes my heart sing. The beginning of a new year always inspires me to do a little life review. You know the deal; Where am I going? Where have I been? Looking back, I realized that I officially registered my business name with the state of Ohio nine years ago yesterday. I actually got my vendors license and started selling a few tiles all the way back in September of 2004; it just took me a while to commit to the business name. It is hard...

It has been way too long since I have posted customer installation pictures! Especially since I have been sitting on some really nice ones, including these: This pretty kitchen features a classic color palette of white, black and gray. The backsplash is a consists a combination of painted wood paneling and tile. The tile above the cook top is a mix of natural stone and ceramic tile. The centerpiece is a 6"x6" "Tree of Life" tile made by yours truly.The picture at the top takes a closer look. I love how this installation shows you don't have to use a lot of handmade tiles...

This bathroom features all sorts of wild creatures- including the brand new Mountain Lion tile! Here it is, installed: The mountain lion (also known as a cougar) was a special request from the homeowner who works with the group Predator Defense, and has a special love for wildcats. I don't normally include habitat on my animal tiles, but I felt that a mountain lion really should have a mountain to stand on. The bathroom features a mix of animals in both celadon and autumn glazes, set among two inch and twelve inch field tiles: I especially love the way this four inch turtle was cut into the...

When I received these lovely pictures of an Arts and Crafts hearth from Jeanne in Maine, I felt anything but blue! It is always super exciting for me when I get to see my work installed. These pictures were extra thrilling because this is the first time I have seen most of these particular tiles in a finished project. And what a project this is! The hearth creates a unique focal point in an appealing & airy space.... Here is an overall view, showing the handcrafted oak mantle, a charming painting of an ocean scene, and of course, handmade tiles!...

I had to dig deep in my email archives to find these gems. These kitchen installation photos arrived back in January, but somehow I forgot to post them right away. The beautiful weather and renewal of life in this wonderful month of May reminded me that it is time to share pictures of this nature inspired kitchen: Above the stove are three 4"x4" art tiles: "Turtle" in Autumn Glaze, "Frog" in Leaf Green Glaze, and "Dragonfly" in Cinnamon. All of these designs were chosen in part because the can be installed on the diagonal. The installer did a fantastic job...

It took about 2 months for me to complete this set of over 600 leaf green tiles. Fortunately the homeowner was willing to wait. And she was also kind enough to share pictures of the completed kitchen!  She got the idea from this installation & I am impressed with how much it looks like the original concept, right down to the shallow condiment shelves on either side of the range: The 1"x6" border tiles around the shelves differ from the original installation, I made a new dot design for this job: (I smiled when I saw this picture, because I love nutiva...

I can hardly believe I got these beautiful installation pictures almost a month ago and I am only now posting them! I am currently working on several large orders, so I have been focused on making as many tiles as possible in my tiny studio. Blogging and updating this website have definitely taken a backseat to tile production of late. But I today I realized I don't want to wait any longer to share this pretty kitchen with you: The homeowners, with the help of designer Patsay Zakian-Greenough, selected an assortment of celadon glazed art tiles. Each design had special significance for...

When my lovely cousin, Andrea, sent me these pictures of her new kitchen, they nearly knocked my socks off! I haven't seen this kitchen in person , but from the pictures I can tell that it is a wonderfully inviting room, and I am thrilled that my tiles are part of it. It is hard to imagine a more perfect setting for a "Birds on a Branch" set in Buckwheat glaze. The light colored subway tiles are by Daltile. They are 3"x6" matte finish, and the color is almond, which harmonizes really well with the creamy art tiles. The texture in the stone...
