I am delighted to welcome GRANT GIBSON as my guest blogger this week. After a stint in New York gaining professional design experience, he set up his own business in San Francisco in 2002. Grant has participated in the San Francisco Design Showhouse and was named one of the “10 Designers to Watch ” by Domino Magazine in 2009. Grant travels, writes and photographs for his own blog.

It seems as if we are in a stone moment. Our overwhelming enthusiasm for stone should not eclipse ceramic tile as a fabulous material for backsplashes, fireplaces, kitchens, bathrooms, laundry rooms and mudrooms. It is extraordinarily versatile, with unique palettes, easy maintenance  and architecturally as well as structurally interesting. Personally, I think there is nothing more beautiful than a wall of handmade tile. There are nuances of glaze variation, surface irregularities and artistic expression in each tile.
