Simplicity and Complexity

As you know, I'm a big fan of art tile. There's something about each individual tile being made by hand, and a noticeable lack of perfection, that really appeals to me.

Boneyard Brick by Trikeenan in Smoke, Coldfront and Frost
Speaking of smoke, this one blew me away because it looks so sculptural and twisted:

Although my past few posts have dealt with decorative tiles, I also appreciate the simplicity of a well-crafted field tile.
Muse by Oceanside Glasstile

This last one seems as if it would be dull because of the dark color, but the way the light reflects off the textured surface makes it fascinatingly complex.
