New Work for residence in Hawaii

We were contacted in September by an interior designer in Hawaii who was interested in commissioning tile murals for the exterior of a client's guest suites. We sketched the designs and chose colors for each of the four guest suites (see below)

Here are three of the four murals, carved and drying before bisque-firing.
