The eyes have it!

Maybe it's because I'm a tile maker, but whenever I'm in a thrift store I can't avoid the urge to buy any and all trivets or frames which might hold a tile.  I take them home, pop out the ugly thrift store tile that came glued into it and proceed to make tiles that will hopefully shrink to fit (I use a porcelain mix which has about 15% shrinkage rate in the kiln).  I kept finding pairs of tile frames so I was drawn to make some pairs of eyes to fit into them.  Here are two of my latest pairs.  They're for sale at Bootleg, a boutique in Chico, CA.  But don't hestitate to email me about custom tile eyes: ladyindar@gmail.com


Wise Men tiles!

Here are some fun tiles I made for my husband as a Christmas present.  The first is the grouchy Joe West from the movie "Eddie and the Cruisers II" and the second is Steve Brule from the show "Brules Rules" which is a spinoff of the "Tim & Eric Awesome Show" on Adult Swim.  He has them hanging above his desk for inspiration.  Here's a column he wrote in which he describes his love for Eddie and The Cruisers II:  http://www.popmatters.com/column/157768-heroes-and-jerks/
