This is what the mural looked like after one firing. It’s mostly just background colors, and establishing shapes of things. When I need to put a solid color behind a complex shape, for instance, the sky behind the tree, I save that for the next firing.
Here’s what the mural looks like in progress. In the first shot, you can see the image drawn on the lower part of the mural. In the second shot, the top few rows of tiles are on the glazing table being painted. I was part way through painting the background color on the roof tiles when I took the picture.
This is one of the smaller pieces I’ve done lately, only 6 6” x 6” tiles, but it will make a charming accent in a shower.
This little custom tile mural just went home today. It will go behind a stove. The images of the fish were taken from images captured by the client’s set camera in his stream.
This piece got installed recently. It’s based on some art work my client sent me.
These tiles just went home over the weekend to some close neighbors. The background view of Mt. Rainier is from a picture they sent me from their cabin in the South Sound. The three and tidelands were from pictures I had taken to add some interest to the foreground. This will go in their new kitchen backsplash.
Last week I posted a new walk-in shower on the Bathrooms page. Once again, it's one of those pieces that surround you, so it's impossible to see it all in a photograph. And this one is a really tine room. So here's a video of it.
