Weird, huh? Seems like there are lots of other things I should focus on first. But there's an art studio around the corner from the house that has beautiful pottery and art tile. I've swooned over their window displays for years and was thrilled to have an excuse to learn more about the artist. So, a few months ago, I had the opportunity to meet Jon White, the artist and owner of Odd Inq and see some of his work up close. It's stunning and the perfect accent for our Craftsman style home. I made an appointment to meet him at his studio, when he returned from the famous Philadelphia Museum of Art Craft Show.

We considered several different ideas for the backsplash. I want a focal point in the space over the new stove we'll be installing. So we got a yardstick out and laid out the space on his design table. After looking at different sizes and formats, we decided on these large, beautiful tiles. With the graceful oak trees framing the water and mountain view, these tiles reflect Maine's beauty with an Arts & Crafts sensibility.
Aren't they amazing?
|Seriously, they make me swoon! Love these!!!|
So now that I have these beauties in hand - it's time to start the rest of the design work! Stay tuned!
