Frog singer with cattails and song book - 4x4" version.

This handmade ceramic tile depicts a musical frog, croaking.....I mean singing!

The inspiration for this tile is taken from a Victorian postcard. I just love their playful imagery and was happy to be asked to create a series of tiles based on them. I carved the image in wax and cast a plaster mould. After extruding a slab of porcelain clay, I pressed the mould into it and cut the tile into a smaller 4x4" version of my larger tile. This was a special order size from a lovely Etsy customer - thanks Duva!!, and I liked it so much I made a bunch of them. After firing the tile I glazed this one in a slate blue matte and fired it a second time.

You can find the full sized version right here -

The whole 3 tile panel is shown in the bottom photo - if you'd like the set, just let me know. I've included a photo of the fireplace layout that I originally carved them for, that includes Daylily panels and Dogwood flowers. I can create this same fireplace for you upon request!

Please convo me if you have any questions or special requests, and thanks for visiting!!
