A couple from Boise, Idaho, Harry Dellamater, and Kat Dellamater take art tiles to the next level. In their little studio, Rocky Canyon Tileworks, they have created hundreds of handmade ceramic art tiles and steel frames for their mosaic artwork. The pattern is various inspired surroundings from detailed flowers to animals that are wrapped in fresh colors.

The story behind their successful workshop was when they built an outdoor kitchen in their house. Kat at that time wanted to do some mosaic work on the countertops and researched different styles of tile, went to a place in Arizona to learn more about tile works.

To make the tiles, roll out a slab of clay and start cutting out the designs. When they dry, glaze them and put them in the kiln for the first fire. If black line details or other colors are required they go in again at a lower temperature fire. After that, these tiles are applied to the frames using an acrylic tile adhesive so they will stay in place. Lastly, apply epoxy grout on the surface and it's set up to be outdoors.

The tiles are waterproof and you can put them outdoors year-round in any climate. Meanwhile, steel table frames are powder coated and steel wall frames have an automotive clear coat finish, making them also weatherproof. Even better, the couple uses only epoxy grout, which means artwork never needs to be sealed and can be washed from your garden hose!
