The Parsonage
The Parsonage

The Odyssey for Ceramic Arts, a local ceramic school in Asheville, North Carolina, invites artists from around the country to teach workshops and take classes throughout the year. The owners of the school, Brian and Gail McCarthy, seeing a need for nearby housing, purchased and renovated a run-down farmhouse and one-time parsonage. Brian and Gail invited several local tile artists to design fireplace surrounds and bathrooms for each of the four guest rooms. The fireplace surround in this room is quite narrow whereas the hearth is relatively large. We chose a 4" format and placed our maple and oak leaf tiles on the diagonal to create more energy and movement in the narrow space. The diagonal format is reiterated on the hearth with forest green field tile and several playfully placed terra-cotta tiles. Lastly, a border of 2" maple leaves finishes out the project.
