Pallets of Tile
Yesterday I made a couple of tiles layering slip over the designs. Gary said the first tile looks like it's straight out of the 60s. I might make a few more tiles and leave more open space. Sometimes I tend to get a little carried away with the slip, not knowing when to stop adding more designs and color. Ang made some white tiles which I really liked, later she added other colors and textures, and I like those too. There are so many possibilities with layered designs and textures.
Thank goodness I'm not making all the tile for our floors. I'd be making tiles till the cows come home. Four pallets of tile were delivered. We've been living with concrete floors since we moved in here. Yesterday the tile we finally decided on for the floors was delivered. Originally we were going to put laminate, but with the humid climate and sandy soil that's tracked in, we decided tile would be a better choice. Easy to take a mop and just clean it up.
Does anyone have tile in their studio? How do the grout lines hold up to the clay or glaze splatters? I hate to put in tile and then cover it up, but then again I don't want to ruin my new tile floor either.
Today is opening scallop season in Florida, twelve days earlier than normal. We're taking advantage of the crystal clear waters and going scallop diving, so stay tuned for a post about scallops up next. Sorry Gary's motel story will have to wait. Comments and suggestions are welcome.
