Sunflower and Aspen Kitchen Tiles

Here are a few pictures of the kitchen mural I am making for my sister.  She lives in Evergreen, Colorado and so we went with an Aspen/sunflower theme. We just got back from visiting her at Christmas and I am eager to get to work.IMG_20151226_074012

Here is the view from the window of her upstairs apartment where mural will go. As you can see she has quite a few Aspen in her yard ( and quite a bit of snow!). But in the summer her house is surrounded by wild flowers and hummingbirds.

Here is the mural after the bisque firing.
And here is a pic of the mural with a clear glaze.

Now we just need to install it in my sisters kitchen! I have plans to go see her in a few weeks and hopefully we will have time to install it!

Here are the tiles installed in the kitchen . This is my first tile mural and I am very happy with how it turned out. A big thank-you to my sister Beverly and her husband Skip for recruiting me to undertake this project. I learned a great deal from the process of creating these 44 tiles.
