Talavera Tile

As part of a long-overdue kitchen face-lift, last year I began installing the Talavera tiles and ceramics my wife and I had decided to use to add color to the kitchen. I used the tiles and ceramic geckos as the basis for some envelope and postcard illustrations.

Another version of the broken-tile mosaic. For this one, I painted the tile pieces on watercolor paper, coated
them with a clear acrylic glaze, cut them out, and collaged them onto the grout-colored envelope.
Also mailed Jan. 21, 2014

I attached several Talavera ceramic geckos to the cabinets just for fun.
