Fish, Turtles, and Sea Horses. These tiles were in my island home, and thankfully survived Hurricane Ian. I put these in my living room before vacating the Island pre Hurricane. As my house is elevated on stilts fifteen feet, these tiles survived, though everything below was destroyed. I always walked on the beach and collected shells for my projects. My tile creations are unique, one of a kind. They are all hand-cut with clays from various areas. Each tile reflects the fact that it is cut individually, therefore some have slight variations. Each tile is painted with three over-layered coats, to give colors depth. After the final firing, I choose a color for a frame, and finish the creation. Frames are custom made.
