We were recently in San Carlos, Sonora, Mexico and when we were out walking one day we passed by this entry way to house whose other side faced the beach. We both loved the tile mosaic, took a couple of photos and went on. Later we were walking along the beach when we noticed yet more decorative tile on the beach side. An accomplished ceramic artist was definitely involved either as the owner or as a project. We got more photos. These first few shots are all from that house. The entry is a mosaic but many of the tiles such as the fish were made for this project. Other shots show tile murals.

This fish is actually about 8' long and is on a wall a couple
of blocks from the above tiles.
This beautiful tiled dome is in Mazatlan, Sinaloa, Mx.
In the photo above, the ornate tile on the left is very common in Mexico and
they are some kind of cement tile. These were found in an art gallery in
the historic district of Mazatlan and the pond on the right was added in a
much later remodel. I think it is an interesting blend of the older, more
traditional tile with the later update.
