There are many sources of inspiration for our tiles and the following are a few that have inspired us over the years, and some that are still to be tried!
dutch tilesThis amazing panel was photographed in the Rijks Museum, Amsterdam.  We have painted versians of similar panels in the past.
ceramic tiles with angelsAlso from the Rijks Museum.  A potential Putti series here!
mixed white tilesThis photo we took when visiting Rembrandt's house in Amsterdam.  The mixed white tiles in the kitchen are what we try to replicate.
