Yesterday, I produced some designs for porcelain tiles with a Buddha accent. One of my customers had asked for such tiles for a kitchen wall, so I designed several to choose from. Most of the tiles include the lotus flower, which is closely connected to the Buddha.
Many Buddha statues find the Buddha sitting on a lotus flower, since the lotus flower is considered very pure.
I found these Buddhas during travels and at home. Each was taken with my digital camera and transposed to the montage that is now a tile image. I have found Buddhas in the San Francisco Japanese Tea Garden, The Selby garden in Sarasota, Florida, in the yard and home of friends, in my own collection from travels to Thailand and Laos, from a store in Sedona, and from a poster.
These tiles can be produced in the dimensions 4x4, 6x6, and 8x8 and can be used for trivets, coasters, wall hangings, and back splashes in the bathroom or kitchen.
