There is an artist in Canada, Sid Dickens, who produces really lovely, intriguing small artworks which he calls 'memory blocks'. They are archaic-looking tiles, 6x8 inches in size, but much deeper than a normal (say, bathroom) tile: his are about 1.5 to 2 inches deep.

Dickens' website barely does justice to the beauty of his artwork, but clicking on the thumbnails shows how attractive the works are:

- and, no, I'm not getting paid to say this. Very nice!

Look, I dunno if Dickens is a Motorhead fan!

When someone commented that the music of Simple Minds was reminiscent of fjords and rolling hills, their keyboard player, Mick MacNeil, suggested that heavy metal bands were perhaps inspired by the Alps.

Anyway, how did/do you save (and attach here) the tiles? the FAQ doesn't help much.

I wonder if he considers commissions...

Hmm... probably not. He'd refer you to your quote from AE and tell you what you need, not vice versa.
