Handmade Tiles

As I mentioned in my last blog post, I recently remade some of my sea creatures in the 3"x3" size by request. It was not a small undertaking; I had to re-sculpt my old designs one by one, and then pour seven new plaster molds. The whole project was fairly time consuming. Here is a photo of part of the sculpting process: After I was satisfied with how they looked, I made molds of them. Making molds is always a bit stressful, because the original is usually destroyed in the mold making process. Fortunately, all the molds turned out great,...

The heron collection keeps growing because the heron tiles keep shrinking! The original tile (the 4"x8" heron facing left, which has been in production since April 2011) is pictured above next to one of my newest tiles, an adorably tiny 2"x4" interpretation of the same design. I must admit that I am somewhat smitten with this half-size version.  Like all of my heron tiles, this new version is available facing either right or left, or as a set of two tiles facing each other.  Now herons are available in small (2"x4") medium (3"x6) and large (4"x8"). You can see the...

The process of creating these two inch by two inch tiles was very enjoyable, and I am pleased to be able to share the finished products with you now. There are three completely new designs in this set: the "Hawk", the "Bobcat", and the "Bear." The final design, "Napping Cat," was already available in the 3"x3" size. Now I can make it in the 2"x2" size as well. The images below are of glaze colors not shown above, and should link to the new product pages for these tiles. 2"X2" Bobcat tile shown in gray glaze 2"x2" Hawk handmade tile...

I spent the last day of 2018 packing tiles and feeling grateful. It is an amazing thing for me to have spent another year doing a job that I love, and it would not have been possible without the support I have received from all of you. The fact that people find my little website or see my tiles in a gallery and respond positively to what I am doing has made such a difference in my life. That people are willing to spend their hard-earned money on products that I designed and then make with my hands is truly...

This may or may not be what is commonly referred to as  "Cape Cod" style house, but I can tell your for sure that it is located in beautiful Cape Cod, Massachusetts; a place that is famous for its salt marshes, pristine beaches and diverse flora and fauna. The local plants and wildlife of the area are reflected in the choice of tiles for this bright and cheery bathroom. I love the way the homeowner chose to incorporate multicolored handmade tiles into this bathroom. The the lower third of the wall is covered with beadboard wainscoting. At the top of...

It has been far too long since I have posted installation pictures! Photographs of this lovely hearth showed up in my inbox this week, and there is no time like the present for me to share them with you.  The client sent this explanation for their choice of tiles: "We tore out our old fireplace mantel/surround and I designed and built one more to the craftsman style we like. We searched forever to find the tiles that we felt would be perfect for the job.  The leaf tiles represent the three types of trees we have in our yard.  The black...

This is one of my favorite times of year. The blossoms are blooming, the leaves are budding, and indigenous gallery is having their annual artTILE extravaganza!! It is a huge honor for me to be a part of this invitational show.  (They even put a picture of some of my tiny tiles on the back of the postcard!) If you have never been to indigenous gallery, you are missing out. I have been fortunate to be a part of every one of the previous artTILE shows, and they just keep getting better every year. There couldn't be a more perfect...
