New Glow-in-the-Dark Mosaic Skull! Huge!

Here's my latest beast!  It's not as heavy as you might expect because it's a styrofoam base that I coated with thinset and mesh in 3 layers to form a hard shell over.  The eyes light up and flash red (there's a 2AA battery compartment at the base) and it glows that spooky neon blue! Yes it's for sale :) contact me!
 ^ ^ my band's practice room just happens to be a great place to photograph glow in the dark stuff ^ ^

 this is the underside looking up at it:


Roadhouse and the Big Lebowski tiles!

Here's my latest "Wise Men" tiles. The top one shows the character Dalton from the movie "Road House" played by Patrick Swayze. There's some pretty good quotes in this movie, but "pain don't hurt" has to be my favorite. Below is the Dude from the movie "The Big Lebowski" played by actor Jeff Bridges. Again, there's a ton of great quotes from this movie and this one was sort of a random pick. The quotes have to be rather short to put on one of these 4" x 4" tiles. The above tile from the scene where the henchman have just put the Dude's head in the toilet and can't understand why they've found a bowling ball in his bag.  Anyhow, if you're starting to think of your favorite movies and favorite quotes, and you're looking for a custom tile to capture it, look no further. Contact me at ladyindar@gmail.com to discuss.  Custom 4" x 4" Cinema Quote tiles are $40 plus shipping.


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/
