Natal Granite Retreat

Update: the 2-person Jacuzzi is now installed! Whew, finally done! So many friends have asked about how the custom tiles are designed, made and installed I am including photos of the process here.
Javier Chavez and his two brothers did the hard work of tearing out the kitchenette in the "Granny Quarters" (which is now the "Sierra Sunshine 'Sweet'") and taking out the old bath, installing a new shower, building a partial wall around the new Jacuzzi.
I worked at home to create the tiles for the Jacuzzi surround, walls, and other areas. Here were the steps:
1. Plan, measure and make a template, roll out clay on my rolling table, cut to the templates. The lace I use on the rolling table is for the back of the tile--I need a good texture for the Thinset to adhere the tile.
2. Collect and lay out the leaves that I want to use for imprints, roll these into the clay.
3. Use my tools to make the textures I want in the tiles.
4. Let them dry several days, clean them up, then fire them ("bisque fire") at about 2500 degrees F. This takes a day to fire and a day to cool.
5. Glaze them-paint 3 to 4 layers of glaze on, fire them at about 2100 degrees for 8 hours, let them cool down slowly for a day.
6. Install them! Put Thinset on the back, place them, wait a day for it to set up, put grout between the tiles, clean it all up. Done!
I still have a few more tiles to complete and install, I don't like the steps, they are too high, so I am going to make a new step, I need to install a curtain around the opening for privacy--of course, there is never an end to updates! I'll post more pictures when I get all the final details done. I am very excited about the color palette I finally chose (after testing about 25 glazes!) And it makes that room so sweet!
