FLAGTRUCK is the Queen of cutting tiles for curves - it's called keystoning. The tiles are cut in little wedge shapes. You can lay your tile down to be cut, and w/a sharpie, mark where you should cut the tile. I tried posting her site, but it didn't work. Search for her work on gourd birdhouses.

Found it. The whole album w/blow you away, so it'll probably take time to look at her gourd birdhouses where she expertly applied the keystoning technique.
