OK Vamp, Giles, & H10T. I tried one mold a while back and it failed, I have a new plan but it involves some uncharted territory for me. I have some other projects going on right now, my goal is to see if I can have some Jade Tile Coasters ready by the end of summer.

EDIT - this thread is not really the place for Market discussions, I'll send you a PM if/when I get some ready.

Fabulous...will follow your progress in the marketing forum.

And now back to tiles tiles and more tiles. I love the vibrant colors and especially that soft yellow color. Keep those pictures coming.

Great thread! Those tiles are all over Oahu. Seemed to be a popular architectural accent for homes built in the 30's. You can spot them on homes along the old pali road, in Nuuanu, and a few in Manoa. A bunch are set in a wall in Lanikai, and I always ponder where I could get my hands on some every time I run by it.

that's ironic considering you work in ceramics and can make your own anytime you want !!

The Adelaide Tichenor House in Long Beach, CA was built in 1904 by the famed Craftsmen architects Greene & Greene and it has a distinct Japanese influence. Greene & Greene had designed quite a few of the furnishings for the home, but they have long since been sold. The home was remodeled in 1953 and I'm assuming that is when the jade tiles were added since I can't them in the 1904 pictures. The house caught fire in 2011, but before then was in desperate need of preserving. It doesn't help that Long Beach doesn't do a good job at preserving its past and the oceanfront home is now scrunched in between 2 condo buildings.
It's at 852 E. Ocean Blvd and is so overgrown with trees and shrubs you have probably driven by it and not noticed it. That stretch of Ocean Blvd used to be lined with stately homes, but most have been torn down and replaced with apartment buildings or condos.

Wow..that orange one is crazy cool!!! I would love to have a whole heard of tiles, they would look good on some kind of a bamboo grid on my ceiling...maybe in the year 2525.

Yeah I was noticing that. If anyone can do it MDM would be the man!!! Will ask him if he has made any progress. Those would be awesome coasters.
