It's a good book for inspiration and ideas. A good reference book and for comparing my own work against it.

BEAUTIFUL tiles, lots of ideas, differing styles. RECOMMEND HIGHLY. 21 April 2008
By Tori Frost - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is a bounty of styles and artistic ideas for what tiles could and may become, with an open mind and some creative techniques. As a beginning ceramicist, this is exactly the sort of thing I was looking for; as I wanted to break out of the traditional 4x4 square and make something wholly unconventional. I wasn't sure if my ideas would work, but after seeing what others have done I am inspired to make my dreams a reality. Thanks to books like these, I can let my imagination run wild and my only limit will be time and creativity.

Truly Inspiring 15 Feb 2008
By Craig E. Wood - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
At the risk of being self serving (my work is featured on page 411) I have to say as a clay artist in general and more particularly as a tilemaker this collection is inspiring. The depth of styles and techniques used here is incredible; as someone who has to date been primarily using glazes and underglazes, the examples in this book have immediately sent me back to my local clay supplier in search of new ways to express myself in clay. A must have for anyone who aspires to create art through the medium of tile.

a multitude of design and creation 17 Mar 2008
By C. Robert Friedman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Among the very best of the Lark Books "500" series. Brilliant color and design, not limited to traditional tiles and encouraging to the artist craftsman.

it is inspiring. 9 Feb 2008
By Kim C. Brown - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
When I thought of the book, the first word that came to mind was inspiring, then I noticed that was part of the title. Well, I want to confirm that it is true. After looking at this book I sat down and made a few tiles of my own. It is a very cool collection.

500 Tiles should be titled "500 Inspirations" 24 Aug 2009
By Joyce Waterhouse - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
As a ceramic artist and sculptor, I find the "500" series of books quite inspirational. I especially appreciate the wide variety of techniques used by the individual artists. I live in Australia which in some ways is quite isolated from the ceramic world at large. People in isolation tend to develop their own culture. This is especially true in ceramics. By showing contemporary work being done in other countries, Lark again in this publication, has given the artist food for thought. And the many full-colour photographs give an insite into the techniques being developed by others.

From the book's title, I had expected to find page after page of ceramic wall tiles. But I was happily surprised to find that the book shows more or less flat (or relief) sculpture and is not limited to the sterotyped wall-only "tile" applications.

I would recommend this book to artist who work in clay or any other 3D medium. It especially makes a good read when you are suffering "artists block". There are so many examples of different types of work here, that you are bound to go back to your workbench with a wealth of new ideas.
