It's is approximately 6x6 inches and 7/8 of an inch thick. It is low fired which means it shouldn't be used permanently outdoors or in areas that receive constant water (like a shower stall). It'd do great in any kitchen or bathroom back splash, hanging on a wall (there are holes in the back to hang it), in a shadow box frame (mom's favorite option), on a plate stand for a desk ornament or amidst your book collection.
The process used to make these is a different from my usual relief tiles that are made from an original mold. Instead here, I sketch my design and create acetate stencils for where I want each layer of the drawing to come forward. Then in the studio, I roll out my clay, cut the pieces with my stencils and start layering, one on top of the other so the end result is a design that pops out of the tile's background. This allows me to get more detailed with my designs and it saves my hands too!
