Kathy Thompson
Handmade Ceramic Tiles & Mosaics

The diversity of my medium – clay – allows me to mold tiles into unique shapes to create art that is pleasing, touchable and often functional. I cut and form clay into kiln-fired tiles, then create mosaics, which range from abstract to realistic. The majestic firs surrounding my Chehalem Mountain studio constantly inspire me.
