Handmade Art Tiles by John Beasley
John and Debbie own Medicine Bluff Studio where all of John’s designs are hand crafted from start to finish.
“A dear friend moved back home to the UK and as our parting gift I made this Ape with a Monacle bowl for her. She loves apes and chimps and it was my opportunity to create a one of a kind piece to show how much we care for her. It was done in the sgraffito method and was a lot of fun to do. This was my third sgraffito bowl. It was so nice to be able to do this because I don’t normally get to make one of a kind pieces due to time constraints with our tile business”.
“The most gorgeous artistry and workmanship I have ever seen. We are dumbfounded by the beauty and quality. I have been high-end art gallery manager and a tile aficionado for years, specializing in art nouveau and arts & crafts tiles. I looked for two years to find signature tiles like these to highlight our new home’s fireplace and kitchen. I never found anything good enough so just put in background tiles. I just bought four of these in various designs. These out-do my highest expectations. We’ll be happily retro-fitting these in.”
