Wow, wow wow! Hand crafted tiles are more exciting than ever. And that's saying a lot because tile shopping has always been such a fun part of my work. Lately, I'm seeing a lot of painting on natural stone tiles. Maybe the natural stone lends itself like a canvas giving depth and variation to an image. Kudos to the folks at clé tile and the artists they are working with to introduce some truly unique and spectacular works of art to clad your abode's walls. More photos below of some pretty mind blowing examples of this art work in clay. Whether chinoiserie, urban edge, nature, or photography fits your decor they've got you covered. And the price does not even offend for some of these and almost anyone can splurge for a small amount of wow!
