Featured Tile Design – Winter 2015
Customized Fir Mural Set
Ten tiles plus a border with pine cone accents
Along with unique color schemes, we often create customized tile designs and tile sets for customers. This dramatic mountain scene is a variation on our fir mural set. It incorporates six tiles from the standard fir mural plus it includes our sentinel fir tiles, one placed at each end. The sentinel fir tiles have been enlarged and sculpted while the clay is wet to link them up with the existing tiles. An alpine lake was added to the foreground. The sky is glazed in a combination of yellow and orange glazes to create a sunset effect.
This ten tile set measures approximately 22" wide by 14" high without the border.

Tile artist Laura Reutter began making
and designing ceramic tiles in 1998. Taking inspiration from
early art pottery companies such as Moravian, Newcomb,
Rookwood, and Grueby, her designs depict nature, with
elements of Art Nouveau as well as Arts & Crafts aesthetic.
Many of our studio's glaze colors are blended by hand, including some unique to Ravenstone Tiles. In keeping with the Craftsman tradition, the majority of
glazes have a matte to satin surface quality, with
subdued colors that enhance the relief carving. Each tile is
hand-made; glazes are likewise
hand-applied, making every tile a unique work of art.
Tiles are custom-made.
Please allow 3 to 4 weeks to fill most orders.
It may take
somewhat longer for large and / or special orders.
