The beautiful blue tones of bottle gentian (Gentiana andrewsii) are a highlight of late summer and fall in moist prairie areas. I took this photo in the Green Prairie at the UW-Madison Arboretum.

SIZE: 4x4, 6x6 or 8x8-inches - choose from drop-down menu

FINISH: glossy or satin - choose from drop-down menu.

Satin finish tiles have scratch resistance with a semi-gloss finish similar to the color reproduction and texture of a glossy tile. They may be used as trivets, framed for display, or used in backsplashes, showers, accents in a tiled wall or wall murals in any room in residential or commercial buildings. They are not recommended for countertop, floor, or exterior applications (I have special tiles available for use as floor tile). Use any commercially available adhesive for ceramic tile; unsanded grout is recommended. Tiles can be cleaned with any household non-abrasive cleaner and a soft cloth or sponge.

The glossy finish tiles are more striking for artwork and photo reproduction, but are best for decorative use only - in tile stands or framed pieces. If you plan to use the tile as a trivet, the glossy tile will work, but the satin finish resists scratching best. Glossy tiles are not recommended for surfaces which require frequent cleaning; grouting is not recommended.

A great gift for Christmas or any occasion, for anyone, but especially for your favorite gardener (even if that's yourself!).

SAVE! If you order the matching tile and mug together, the price for the two is less than the items purchased individually. To order the pair of items, copy the complete title of this listing and go to this listing to pick mug and tile sizes: https://www.etsy.com/listing/231647870/matching-mug-and-tile-your-choice-of-my?.

I transfer my design to a specially coated ceramic tile by a process which infuses special dyes directly into the coating using high heat. The graphic is colorfast (except when exposed to strong sunlight) and heat resistant.

I purchase the specially coated blank white ceramic tiles, but all designs are my original artwork, created using my photos, computer graphics programs and my imagination. I transfer the design to the tile myself in my home studio.

Each tile is signed and dated on the back and can be framed as a wall hanging, used as a trivet, or as a wall tile (special tiles are available for use as a floor tile). Use tiles for a backsplash behind a sink or for accents in a tiled wall. For a wall hanging or trivet, wooden, cork or metal frames are available to use with the tile (not included with tile purchase). The tile may also be hung directly with a plate or tile hanger (available free with the tile IF REQUESTED).

The tile comes with small bumpers on the back to protect surfaces on which it is placed when used as a trivet (shown in photo of back of tile). These may be removed easily for use as a wall tile.
