What's Up??

No apologizes for having gone missing from my blog for so long.....life happens and ain't that the truth. I started this post way back in April....finally posting!

So...I've had the best custom projects come into the studio over the last 6 months. Carving is my favorite thing to do and some wonderful customers have given me some lovely designs to carve - how great is that? Some of the carvings are based on photos of installations found in and on historic buildings, some are from the actual tiles that customers have sent to me. There's also been a range of customers who need exact matches that fit in a tile set with the originals, and some that have said - here's the design I like, interpret however you'd like to (that's sweet!).

Here's a photo of the actual tiles that have been sent to me that I have to reproduce.



Here's a photo that shows tiles I'm carving from photos, some are from installations, some are from the web, and some are from old catalogues.




It's been so long since I started this post that most of the carvings have been done.

I'll show you the projects and how I translate them into tile in my upcoming posts. And I promise it won't be a year from now!!
