A charming little turtles swim through a pond of swirling waves. A full moon glows in the early evening sky. This tile makes me think of happy summer days spent at the lake. We have one of these hanging in our bathroom.

A perfect gift for any turtle lover or collector of original art tiles!
If you do want to send this tile as a gift, we will wrap it for you in brightly colored tissue paper and tie a pretty ribbon around it. We are also happy to enclose a personal message from you.

We cut this tile out of a half inch thick slab of clay. After it is dry, it is bisque fired in an electric kiln.

Then the turtle was hand drawn in wax, hand glazed and fired to 1800 degrees in a raku kiln. The tile is removed from the kiln while it is still glowing hot and placed into a container of sawdust. The hot tile causes the sawdust to ignite. Then the container is covered producing a smoky carbon rich atmosphere which causes the unglazed parts of the clay to darken.

It is ready to hang by a sturdy wire attached to the back. (see the photo of the back of the tile)
