I worked in tile showrooms for years, crafting a small side business etching custom designs on tile and stone. I no longer work in a showroom, but I am still the TileGoddess!
Green Sea Turtles (2005), 18 x 18 inches. This is one of my favorite pieces. The tile itself was a one-off Italian import sample that was never imported to the U.S. I got this piece from a tile showroom and held onto it for 3 years before I found the right design. I just LOVE the depth of the vivid blue-green glaze. Absolutely gorgeous!
Red Oak Leaves on California Gold Slate (2004), 16 x 16 inches. This wreath was installed in an outdoor BBQ kitchen in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, complimented by a stacked stone surround.
North American Wildlife on Tile (2011). I have hundreds of animals designs and can easily create new ones - from aardvarks to zebras and everything in between. Hand carved designs can be etched into tile or stone for decorative inserts or drink coasters. Cheers!
