Welcome to Karla’s whimsical world of mosaic and painted tile,
featuring designs and borders inspired by folk art:
Painted with low fire glaze on ceramic, travertine or marble tile, low temperature fired, grouted and sealed, these pieces are suitable for display. To use as table top take the same care as for a fine wood table, using coasters and place mats or cover with glass.
Mosaics of cut tile, glass, beads, millefiori, china, pottery and found objects. Some are self-framed with painted edges, others are in purchased frames. All have finished edges and hardware for hanging. Though they weigh more than traditional paintings they can be hung without damage to walls by using a screw and anchor.
Installations and Commissions
Painted with china paint on ceramic glazed tile and kiln fired. These pieces have been installed in kitchens, bathrooms and areas of heavy wear and make cheerful architectural enhancements to windows, arches, stair risers and etc. Mosaics are constructed of weather proof materials and sealed, suitable for outdoor or indoor installation even in harsh climates.
Murals of fired hand-painted tile or mosaic, using recycled materials and including community organization in the design phase, the gathering of recycled materials and the making of the mural
