The Hummingbird is a part of my Prairie Bird Series. Each bird is intricately designed with 'true to species' detailing.
This palette shows the bird in rich clear amber browns with brilliant red on the throat and columbine blossom. He is also available as 'Ruby-throated' in emerald greens with the same ruby red on the throat and blossom.
Our tiles are made of a high density, vitreous stoneware/porcelain clay. Each tile is made by hand, one at a time. I concentrate on utilizing glazes that have an inherent variability and a rich tactile surface, not unlike those used in Arts & Crafts ceramics and unattainable in mass-produced commercial tiles.
