Nothing Says Spring like Bird & Nest Tiles

The days are getting longer and warmer and I love waking to the chatter of the birds when spring is in the air. When I think of spring and birds, I always think of Birds & Nests tile.

Birds & Nests Decorative Relief Tile
Bird Over Nest Tile (8" x 8")

This amazing line of bird and nature inspired decorative tile comes in rich, deep pooled glazes in hues of blue and plum and is artistically paired in contrast with terra cotta and earth tones. The large decorative tiles are done in relief and come in 8" x 8" and 8" x 10" accent pieces.

They work well with the soft tones of our Gossamer Crackle field tile. The artist also creates a wonderful line of Eartha Field tile in the same rich glazes found in the bird tiles. You might use one color for a bold look, or mix colors together for a more eclectic and modern feel. These tiles are handmade. You should expect color variations in the glaze of each tile; but, when used together there will be enough consistency for a cohesive design and enough variation for truly custom look.

The hand-glazed bird-themed tiles are a great choice for a thoughtful gift for Mother's Day. They look lovely in a kitchen or place them outside during warm weather months in your garden or outside patio. Each tile comes with a built-in niche for easy hanging.

Wow, these are the most gorgeous ones so far. The one with the egg in the nest really catches my eye - so much so that I now have covetousness in my heart. And a birthday wish! (which isn't for a long time yet). Thanks for adding the example of how they go together, as I'm not that good at visualizing.

These really are stunning tiles and thanks for your comments. I agree, I love the terracotta of the bird's nest paired with the deep, pooling glazes.

While your birthday may be a while off, Mother's Day is just around the corner (wink, wink). My mom received one of these tiles a few years back for Mother's day and she loves it.
