Art Tiles

     Each year, I select a few of my paintings to reproduce in the form of ceramic art tiles. Handled carefully, they provide a lasting reproduction at a very affordable price. An art tile is made by taking a digital scan of the watercolor, adjusting the digital file on a computer, making a digital print on transfer material, and transferring the image to the surface of a tile where it is chemically bonded to the tile by heat. The image becomes part of the tile, not just a layer on its surface. The tiles can be displayed on a table-top plate stand, hung on the wall by means of the hook on the reverse, or can be embedded in a wall of tiles or cabinet doors in a bathroom or kitchen. They are not intended to be cutting boards or trivets, because the surface can be scratched by sharp or rough objects. Excessive heat will also mar the surface. The tiles are 8" x 10" with a  smooth, satiny surface. Each is $40; tax and shipping are extra. My clients have found these ideal for gifts, hostess presents, reminders of a trip, or a special treat for themselves.

Plymouth Gentians

Description: These are lovely, pink wildflowers that grow around some glacial kettle ponds
on Cape Cod. Because they grow only on Cape Cod and in the Carolinas and are found no where else in the world, they are on the endangered species list.    

Pebbles and Periwinkles

Description: Periwinkles, broken shell bits, a dog whelk, and seaglass nestle amongst pebbles on a beach south of Plymouth. There are several "lucky stones" (stones ringed with a stripe, in local lore they are lucky).

Breathing Space

Description: An open vista depicting Nauset Beach in Orleans. The original watercolor, overwritten in calligraphy with a quotation from Rachel Carson, was given to Laurel's marine biologist daughter

Dune at Sunset

Description: A dune rises from a beach in East Dennis, showing the muted colors of white sands reflecting the colors of sunset. Beach grass and Dusty Miller anchor the dune in place.

Summer Journey

Description: An abbreviated version of the original painting, Journey to the Lighthouse, a popular walk along the road on Hardings Beach to the Stage Harbor lighthouse as seen at dusk when the shadows are long and colors more muted.

Salute to Freedom

Description: A floral planter, bedecked with an American flag, on a front lawn of a home in Chatham on the 4th of July displays simple patriotism. The original painting was given to Laurel's daughter and son-in-law as a "thankyou" to both of them in the year he was in Afghanistan. 

Digging for Dinner

Description: A man is shown clamming for soft-shelled clams in Pleasant Bay in North Chatham as the tide rushes in around him.
