This is a shower stall that serves as the foundation for a beautiful masonry heater on the main floor of the house. The family who we worked with had spent some years in Hawaii before returning to live on their homestead in the Pacific Northwest.. They wanted to remember the lush tropics and their time in Hawaii each time they bathe. So Eva and I came up with the following tile and mosaic installation. We worked very closely with the owners on which materials, what colors, and what images they wanted.
The masonry stove for which the shower stall we tiled was the foundation…
Look at Eva’s blog for photos of installation process, “before” photos, description of this masonry heater and wonderful coverage of the earthen plaster she did on the exterior – amongst many other projects she has done.
