I do not have many photos of my work hanging in the buyers home. This is one of the best photos.
Customer started buying my work on ebay, and became a loyal repeat customer. Merridee eventually started her own collection of antque tiles and comissioned me to design and make a few frames. In the photo is her sitting room in Park City. The long framed display on the wall behind the chairs is my autocad creation. Tiles are 2 and 3 inch antique cucumber green Gruebys. Frame is quartersawn white oak,mortice and tenon pegged construction w/ bookmatched sides, golden oak dye, danish oil, armorseal, garnett shellac and minwax antique mahogany paste wax. The lattice work on this piece is 1/4×3/4 strips of qswo, half-lap joinery and 1/8 pegged.

The smaller piece over the fireplace is also one of my work. Tile was made in my studio, starting as a mahogany relief carving, then plaster molded, pressed clay and then kiln fired. Frame, designed in autocad with mortice and tenon construction with very similar finish as the larger one.

Looks like Merridee is also an A&C aficionado. Nice work.

it’s pretty cool that a customer would provide a pic of how they have displayed your work.
