Our company is a family owned business since 1982. We make personalized gifts that last a lifetime full of memories. It doesn’t stop here… our galleries offer unique home décor for every room in the house in the house creating beautiful tile art and tile murals. The main reason I drove into the sublimation industry more than eight years ago was a photograph I saw imaged onto a ceramic tile. The clarity and color reproduction was so vivid, and the fact that the image was infused into the tile made it seem as though I had created a work of art that would stand the test of time.

My base medium is hard shell gourds, once dry I mix a wide variety of traditional and non-traditional mediums on them to create one of a kind piece. I do all the work myself from the field to booth; cleaning, cutting, carving, coloring, weaving, beading and wood-burning. My designs range from classic to whimsical.

Laura Cavanagh

My work is an exploration of shape, line and space. I am constantly observing my surroundings, breaking down everyday, recognizable objects into a series of shapes and lines. A rectangle and a column of circles that I observe on a wall phone, for example, might transform into an intricate matrix of other elements that poke at, rub up against, cross out or sit atop other elements. This interplay then transforms into one final, cohesive melody on the page. Part of the enjoyment I find in creating these line works is noticing the shapes that form within the negative space during the course of my drawing. As I develop the work, shapes emerge from the empty white space on the page, and this is very exciting to me. These shapes then become an integral part of the final composition.
