This cow's name is Lucy, a much loved member of the family of a dear customer of mine from the Bay Area in California. I hadn't carved a cow before she asked me to make a "portrait" of the cow that steadfastly provides her family with milk for cheese and yogurt making. Now this cow is a regular part of my farm tile collection.

Handmade terracotta tile with a carved and painted image of a jersey cow standing on some grass with one white cloud overhead.

The background of the design is warm white. Low fire with clear glaze, it is a "nominal" 4x4" (actual measurements are 3 7/8"H x 3 7/8"W x 3/8"D), sides of tile are terracotta. Tile comes with four cork pads on back and an embedded wire for hanging. See additional pictures for view of the terracotta sides and the back side.

A fine mesh crackle pattern adds texture to the surface and gives it a lovely patina of timelessness.

All my ceramic tiles are one of a kind, hand painted and hand carved. It is a 30 step process, all by hand. No molds are used. The wire on the back makes them great for hanging as a piece of art. They also lay flat for installation in kitchen backsplashes, tub surrounds or fireplaces.

DIMENSIONS: 3 7/8"H x 3 7/8"W x 3/8"D
