The originals for this  series were  created by artist Stephani Stephenson.  She first models and carves originals in clay. Plaster molds are then taken from the originals, then tiles are hand pressed from the molds,  glazed, and fired.  These designs are derived from Batchelder , Claycraft  and Muresque  Relief Tile redesigns of the 1915-1930. These tiles look beautiful in a fireplace, set into a tiled, stucco, adobe or stone wall, or framed and hung as artwork.  They accurately reflect the feeling of the Early California tiles, which portrayed a romantic view of Early California life and architecture. Tiles are made in buff clay but can also be made in red clay, and are available in traditonal stain, stony matte and vitreous glazed finishes. 
You will find complementery designs on the Batchelder and Botanical pages as well!
