The smiling face of the radiant sun always had a special place in the heart of my family. The circular table where my parents enjoyed gin and tonics in the summertime was decorated with a similar face, painted by my mother, and one of her outbuildings now has a metal effigy of the shining sun on one of its walls. When I look upon an image like this, it brings me a sense of peace and happiness.

This tile was handpainted in multicolor glazes by me. It's fired in such a way that the individual colors create texture, there is a slightly raised quality to it. It's a standard 4" x 4" square, so could readily be incorporated into a backsplash or other tiling project for an artistic, celestial touch. It is edged in light blue, so it's nicely finished if you'd like to use it as a trivet or coaster.

Of course, the limitations of the computer mean that the colors are a little different due to monitor differences and the lighting... I tried to include a couple of views and lighting situations.
