There are many owls around Forest House, seldom seen but often heard. This original, handmade accent tile features the colorful plumage of the Great Horned Owl. This tile is sculpted with heavy relief that is accented with underglaze, then it is fired to cone 5 with the coat of glaze on the background. The design was inspired by tiles that were produced during the Arts and Crafts movement-the relief invites you to touch it. Each finished piece measures 2.5 inches square. The original tile was sculpted in clay then cast into a plaster block mold. Tiles are then produced by hammering clay into the mold. If you search for Forest House Tile on YouTube, you can see a video of how this tile is created. This tile is durable and ready to install. It would make an excellent accent tile in a kitchen backsplash, but it can also be hung on a small nail anywhere. If you wish to hang this tile please request that I glue a hanger to the back. It comes in a beautiful blue glaze too. My owl tiles are not as rare as the real thing-I keep a stock on hand and usually I ship in a couple of days. However, if I am low I can make these up in about a week and will let you know if that is the case.
