I'm sure you've all poured over the awesome Ohana website: http://www.luauatthelake.com and maybe you've dug into the vendor page: http://www.luauatthelake.com/id8.html . If you did, you probably noticed many old favorites like Fashion Tramp, Velveteen Lounge, and Lake Tiki. Well, I just wanted to highlight a new vendor, Tortuga Tile Works, cause that's LuRu's latest venture.

Those of you who made it to the hangover brunch at our place during Bargoylapalooza might have seen some early greenware, but now things are coming out of the kiln at a rapid pace. The Atoll line (her tiki themed tiles) will be expanded in time for Ohana (actually, there are things in the kiln now that aren't on the website yet). And, there are several other retro inspired lines that you might be interested in.

I won't overload this thread with pics. I'll just point you to her website: http://www.tortugatileworks.com and facebook fan page: http://www.facebook.com/tortugatileworks .

We're off to her first art fest vending this weekend in the Florida Keys, where I expect her Deep Sea tiles might do well.

For those of you not on facebook (or if you are and we're just not connected yet) LuRu just pulled a hot new set of tiles from the kiln: http://www.facebook.com/home.php?#!/alb ... 0885053080 (you don't have to belong to facebook to follow that link). Here's a few examples. For scale reference, the squares are about 3 inch by 3 inch.

I have been working on some new Tikis, they are about 8" tall. They still need one more go over before I cast them, but I think they are coming along nicely.

I probably should change the title of the thread to shameless spouse promotion or something, but LuRu's got a contest going on facebook, that's pretty amusing:

http://www.facebook.com/tortugatileworks

specifically here: http://www.facebook.com/tortugatilework ... 080&ref=mf

free merch to the winner

LuRu got a new camera and light-box set-up so maybe this photo does a little more justice to her work:
Image
Here's what she had to say about it on Facebook:

This guy is brand new and based on a sculpture that the Burr's have from the Sepik River area of New Guinea. It is an outdoor (except for freezing temps) mosaic adhered to hardy-concrete-board with thinset. He is 18" tall by 7" wide, $100 plus shipping, 4 in stock right now. (not on website yet) His working name has been Steve...what should I really call him?
