Made to order and commissioned work will be completed within 6 weeks after design and plans are agreed upon.Communication can be done primarily by email at kikofish@svtel.net.

See "Favorite Subjects"or other entries
to view images and wide range of ideas.  

Although every tile from this studio is individually rendered I can replicate theme and style.  Check out "Early Summer 2015" for examples.

ART AS CANVAS  RED STONEWARE CLAY IS ROLLED, 

CUT ETCHED AND HIGH FIRED TO STONEWARE STRENGTH 

THEN FURTHER GLAZED AT LOWER TEMPERATURE TO ENHANCE BRIGHT COLOR.  It is  impossible to anticipate results as glazes do not apply in true colors, firings vary,  thickness of glaze, climate, clay quality and everything else too!


ALL TILES CAN BE MADE READY TO HANG or used as a trivet or installed into wall.
When not working on commissioned tiles I design what I feel will further the best direction for my work artistically.  Alternatively I try to accomplish styles and subject matter that are favorites in art galleries.


Galleries now carrying these tiles are: Abode in Stockholm WI, Tamarack in Stillwater, MN, Seasons in Hudson, WI and Cornerstone in Baraboo, WI.
