Ceramic Handmade Tile Installations

A variety of 4"x4" plant tiles in the Autumn glaze are featured in this smart kitchen. They are set among 6"x6" slate field tiles, which have been cleverly set on the diagonal. This layout is a great way to mix tiles of different sizes. I love how the diamond pattern is repeated in the embossed metal panel over the range. "Autumn" glaze mixes wonderfully with slate tiles. This combination shows off the art tiles well, without allowing them to visually dominate. Counter, backsplash, cabinets and floor all harmonize. The warm, textured earth tones blend easily with one another. Love that tile floor! What a flawless install. Check out how the slate tiles create a...

The installation pictures just keep coming! Within the last few days, I received two different sets of pictures of installed 4"x8" "Heron" tiles in Autumn glaze, so I decided to post sets at the same time. The first two photos feature a wet bar: The herons face each other in a field of white 2"x4" tiles. There are also three smaller 2"x2" feature tiles in autumn glaze that help to define the space. The homeowners designed and constructed this sweet little nook themselves. They even built these enviable cabinets:  I love those old fashioned latches on the cupboards. What a neat mix of modern and traditional...

I can barely believe how far behind I am with posting customer installation photos! I am sitting on dozens of photos of beautiful installations that I have received over the last year or more. Why haven't I been posting them? Who knows! Mostly I have just been really busy making tiles. But I realize that since so many of my wonderful customers have taken the time to send pictures, the I really need to make the time to post them. One of my many goals for summer break is to catch up on posting installation pictures. Or, if I don't catch up completely, I can at least...

A big thanks to H.U. for sharing these photos of her newly tiled hearth, along with her bunnies, Pepper and Winifred!  She installed an assortment of plant and animal tiles in Autumn glaze, including a pair of bunny tiles as tribute to her beloved pets. (A complete list of tiles appears at the end of this blog entry.) Doesn't the picture above capture an exceptionally cheery scene? A nice, warm fire with sun streaming in, along with a snuggly friend... what could be better? The next two pictures are close ups of each side of the hearth. Here is the left: And here is the right:...

There is an emphasis on hand- crafted details in this high-end kitchen. The homeowners decided to frame a herring- bone pattern above the cook top....    .... and installed a 2"x2" Bee tile in each corner of the frame!     Thank you, T.O., for sharing your pictures!

(When we switched to our current website, some lovely installation pictures never made it over from the old version of EmuTile.com. I am going to attempt to re- post all of those "lost" installations, starting with this one. Please note, this particular installation features "Northern Lights" glaze which has since been discontinued.) E.A.  sent me these gorgeous pictures of her hearth.  She ordered two of my 3"x3" Fleur tiles in Northern Lights glaze, and installed them herself.  She found the field tiles on Craigslist and got them for a song; they were left over from someone else's installation. What a lucky find! They really complete the...

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...
