PDX Coasters - tile magnets

Jill moved to Portland in 2011 and fell in love.  She started documenting that love via photography.  In a surprisingly, short period of time, her laptop contained hundreds of photos she wanted to share. She has always been a fan of interesting coasters and has collected quite a few rom different cities she’s visited.  They are great conversation starters and memory generators.
    With a great deal of support and encouragement, she decided to give it a go.  After months of research, trial and error; experimenting with different products, applications, methods, he came up with the technique she uses today.  Each signed photograph is matched with a color tile from Pratt & Larso; an amazing local company that hand glazes and cuts their own tiles. She then finishes the tops with an industrial, high grade epoxy, which makes the finish look like glass.  The techniques she uses enable her to put out th best product she possibly can.  She stands behind her product and welcomes feedback.
