Number 3 for me. The frame turned out great.

Very nice work! Myself, I prefer the first (I like the green w/ A&C) but they all look great.

#3 for me…. I mean brown.
Those frames are so beautiful.
I have never seen one like these before.
You did a fine job Dan.

It is amazing how the color of the tile affects the appearance of the color of the frame. For me the green ones are the best.

Very impressive! Quality tiles and quality frames makes it hard to go wrong. If I were to offer any thoughts, the 2nd one is probably the weakest match for me. I think it’s because the tile has less definition and the frame is very textured. I then tend to focus on the frame more than the tile. Other than that, they all look great – hard for me to pick a favorite…

Dan, I like the rustic look of the brown tiles over the reflective nature of the glaze on the green.
