Whimsical Gift Ideas

Xenia Taler and her partner Steven Koblinsky craft square and circular tiles out of clay, mix vibrant glazes from scratch, and hand-paint each one with a simple yet gorgeous image — from birds and nudes to graphic dots and stripes. This wonderful owl tile is breathtaking with its vibrant hues and big round eyes. Make your own display with these unique tiles. See more of Xenia Taler’s collection. Each tile is sold separately. Every tile is entirely hand painted. The conscious aim of the artist is to create an object that is meaningful, simply because of its appeal and beauty. Because each tile is individually handmade, appearance, variations in shade and color are inherent. Each comes equipped for wall hanging and has cork on the bottom so they can double as trivets. Every tile also comes with an artist’s biography, a perfect addition if giving this tile as a gift.
