This is a job I did a while ago using concrete tiles that I made. I used a diamond bladed bandsaw for the tight curves.

Oh my gosh! Did you draw it out first or have any other kind of pattern you were going by? That's *beautiful*. Any other pics?

Here are a few more pictures. I don't plan much when I begin a job. I have a rough idea of what I want. Then I sketch out a few lines and start laying tile. The design changes and developes as I work along. I like break up tiles in some sections rather than cutting them to fit to give a rougher feel here and there to the work. Thanks for the comments everyone.

on th fireplace the top medallion is same tile that is on the steps. I did it once then the painter said it looked to small. I said that is what the designer wanted so that is what they are getting. Well I kept going then got down from the ladder and took a look. After much contemplation I made it bigger. Stinkin' painter. I thought it was a pretty cool fireplace.
The steps were a pain.
the part on the fireplace that looks sloppy is the 1 x 2 split face right after we grouted it.

Wow..... beautiful work guys and gals!

Here is a job I just finished. Not crazy stuff but definately out of the ordinary.
Whole house flooring was tile and different in every room. The main flooring was as irregular as I've ever seen...... varying as much as 3/8" from tile to tile. But it was the easiest floor I've EVER installed!!! I gridded out the floor (as I always do), made all of my cuts, and that floor just flew in. No need to worry about pesky grout joints lining up...... just keep it between the lines and go for it!!
You spacer users would have been out of luck with this tile. The floor HAD to be laid out to use the tile. The white 6x6 bath was interspersed with glass 2x2's that matched the wild sink and cabinet pulls. They were not installed the day of the pics. 144 tiles were clipped at the corners for the inserts.

Well....... just some pics. as I know we all love pics..

Most definately some awesome work on here....!!!

Here the the latest one I just wrapped up. Tear out and re-do of main and master baths.

Nothing compared to some of the work here but I think it turned out nice and the customer loves it.

Thanks alot.

I assume you are talking about the vent in the tub splash? It was a supply. Not sure why it was where it was, there was lots of wall space.
