Ireland in CT Traditional Kitchen, New York

The cooking alcove recalls the old kitchens in Georgian homes, from the homeowner’s childhood in Ireland. The tiles are handmade and irregular, the hood is antiqued copper. Soapstone countertop.

The tiles in my photo bear no resemblance to these polished white glass tiles. Mine were hand made from clay, with irregular edges, and a complex crackled glaze that caught a multitude of colors from the spectrum. Please do not insert products on my houzz page that are not germane to the discussion.

These tiles are no longer available, the artisan closed her shop. Best look for someone local, or try Pratt & Larson tiles.

I wasn't part of the paint decision. Best to take the photo to a paint store and ask for their help matching it. Good luck!

Yellows are very difficult to get right, any chance you could find out the color of the paint?

Sadly, this was from an independent artisan, who closed down the business shortly after this project. I have yet to find handmade tiles with this quality of glaze and complexity. Keep looking!

We've been making artisan tile since 1995, hand pressed and hand glazed. At least two of our glazes are a close match for color and finish, shown below left on our Stately Spiral 2x6 moldings.

Our hand-pressed subway tiles similar to the photo come in 2x6 and 3x6 sizes (2x6 shown in photo below right)...although to my eye the tiles used in the photo you referenced above look proportionally larger, perhaps about 3x8.

This is a custom made hood, antiqued copper. It made by Rangecraft Hoods in New Jersey, but my local dealer will offer very attractive pricing for this. Contact Albano Appliances in Pound Ridge NY 914 764 4051. Ask for Fred or Mike to discuss this product.
