A beautiful spring evening, a sunny summer morning in the garden, the first warm days are here and I’m ready for flowers. I made tiles out of some of my favorite feline artwork for you to enjoy, to use set down your iced tea or coffee, protect and decorate a countertop or hang on a wall like small paintings.
Each tile is about 4″ square. They are made of white polymer clay rolled thin with my artwork transferred onto the surface with clear details and bright colors. Because they are handmade and shaping, stamping and drying changes their dimensions, they are not uniform in size, shape or thickness, but that makes each one unique.
NOTES ON USE:
- These tiles work great with items filled with hot food or liquids, like mugs of coffee or tea or dishes filled with cooked food. There is not enough heat transferred to affect the polymer.
- They are not safe for use with food like dips or sauces, though chips or cookies would be okay.
- They cannot be used with items taken out of the oven or microwave or off the stove, any item which has been heated by cooking—the polymer will soften from the heat.
And a special discount on two tiles
I add $5.00 shipping to my retail price of each item, but it costs about the same to ship two or three tiles as it does to ship one, and I also have a discount from the retail price for purchasing three or more tiles.
- Purchase 2 tiles for $25.00, use discount code 2TILES25
Click the photo or the link to visit the product listing for each tile. (I typically set up “add to cart” buttons in posts, but that’s been a little confusing with unique handmade items when visitors find the post after the item has sold.)
Peaches and Peonies Tile
There it is, that moment that turns on all the lights for me…one of my cats in the sun, the conditions that have inspired most of my portraits. Cats are creatures of habit, and Peaches chose this spot to have her after-dinner bath every day for a few weeks when the sun was right; I knew it was a keeper whether a photo or a painting, so I photographed it several times over a period of several days, knowing I’d use at least one photo or all the photos as reference to create one painted image.
Garden Sketch with Mimi Tile
Just some bright orange poppies in the sun on a summer afternoon. I took photos of a neighbor’s garden and intentionally angled one of them to have the poppies grouped against a dark background with no leaves or buds and as few stems as possible, and no black centers, just a big mass of orange, and kind of abstract.
You can even get a matching greeting card or gift bag, and more.
