Have you ever heard cat paws prancing upon your roof? No? Well, back in Victorian Britain, when most roofs were created from that iconic fired red clay, the nightly frolicking of rooftop cats gave rise to the word tile.

Josh Talks Tile At Restore Nebraska Conference

At the end of February Josh returned to Omaha, Nebraska to give two presentations to the Restore Nebraska Conference. The first: “Restoring tiles in your turn-of-the-century home”, and the other: “The invention of America’s first tile style: Mid-century Tiles.” The conference has doubled since Josh was there last and has merged with the Nebraska Historical Society.

March 2020 Layl Newsletter

In her newest blog post, Layl reflects on the art which grabs her attention. She describes the feeling a viewer has of a magnificent piece, from the perspective of herself as an artist. She states: “I get obsessed just looking at them. They make me want to live vicariously through those artists. Which is crazy because I live that life already, compulsively creating nearly every day of my life.”

She reflects on the dualism of artist and viewer; creator and consumer. View the full post Here.

One of our more recent and exciting projects is a 125 square foot floor made out of 6 inch and 2 inch hexagons in Coco Moon. The customers for this floor got their inspiration from another floor we made a couple years ago, the massive star and hex project which all together came out to 300 square feet.

In January, Layl created several teapots that had added dimensionality like branches, ladders and carousels. These new teapots, while still functional, go beyond the teapot form and build beyond it’s “borders.” You can view more sculptural teapots like the Flamingo Carousel Teapot (above) at Layl’s website.

It is fun to have your work featured in a place you never imagined! Maybe our subliminal message of naming most of colors after food inspired them to give us a shout out.  Read all about it!
