Welcome to our gallery of handmade ceramic art tile panels. Our tile and mosaic panels differ from many mosaics in that several different techniques may be used to create the individual tiles. Each tile is made entirely by hand in our studio. On occasion we may include polished or rough stones to add a different texture and quality. Some of these panels are already in the homes of collectors, but many are still available and can be viewed at the venues listed in their description. New panels may be added at any time, so please check back often.
Hunter & Hunted
One of my all-time favorites. When I was making this panel, I was worried it might be too dark, but once the tiles were fired the glazes worked out much as I wanted them to, giving the panel the feeling of a scene taking place on the forest floor at dusk. That’s one of the things I love most about these mosaic panels — you never know quite how they’ll turn out until all the steps are done! 8″x8″
Dark Waters II
A 6″x9″ panel with unique metallic glazes on the textured background tiles that set off the fish tiles. Polished obsidian pebbles accent the background. The fish tiles were made using molds created from actual fish so you’ll see the tiniest fin and scale details. Currently on display at Far Ridge Ceramics Studio in Edinburg, VA.
The Singing Tree
I came up with the idea for this panel one winter when a flock of cedar waxwings landed in a tree behind my house. They were twittering so loudly I had to come out of the house and see what was going on. This panel was so much fun to make! Every tile was cut, textured and shaped to fit. Each bird is unique and most likely will never be found in the real world. 22″ wide x 23″ high. We’ve used photos of details from this panel to create a unique set of blank note cards.

Worship the Sun Lizards! This panel was three years in the making and is now on display at Far Ridge Ceramics Studio in Edinburg, Va. This panel would not exist without the assistance of my cats, one of whom caught and killed the fence lizard but left it in good condition. When I discovered it, I headed straight to my studio and made a plaster mold of it which has since been used to create dozens of tiles. You never know where you’ll find inspiration!
Wild Garden Red Dahlias
My love of gardening translated into ceramics. Dahlias have some of the most incredible shades of red so they are the perfect flower for this vibrant panel. I sometimes steer clear of the brighter colors for long periods and then just have to indulge. This panel is currently at Cristina’s Cafe in Strasburg, Va.
Over 300 individually handcut, hand pressed, textured and glazed tiles were used to create the Orchard mosaic panel. The panel celebrates the apple-growing heritage of Rappahannock Co. Virginia. 18″x19″.
Ama’s Wild Garden
A custom panel created with the client’s favorite garden flowers — lilies, echinacea and fritillaria. The two butterflies were added to please her granddaughters and the bluebirds to add even more cheer. The panel measures approximately 16″x22″. Check our installation page to see it in it’s home!
