New David Ellison Tiles

Both galleries just received large shipments of tile work from St. Clair Shores artist David Ellison. How can I sum these tiles up in one word? Easy. STUNNING!

David works with the natural color of the clay and applies his glaze in a way that lets it show through. This effect lends an aged and softer look to his work. His tiles are like something you'd find buried amongst ancient ruins. His attention to detail is meticulous. These tiles have to be seen and touched in person to really be appreciated.
