these are gorgeous, and how excellently personal to have your own garden showcased. I'm thinking you made the tiles yourself and rolled the leaves into the clay before firing?

Thanks for all the kind comments! I am completely smitten with the new backsplash.

I'm thinking you made the tiles yourself and rolled the leaves into the clay before firing?

Yep! I am fortunate enough to have access to a fantastic pottery studio with a slab roller, so that made things very simple. There are a few tiles where the clay reacted with certain plants and made dark, shiny spots in the finished piece - something I wasn't really expecting - just a word to the wise in case anyone else wants to try it.
