Again, here is a design to celebrate my obsession with trees, this time honoring the parts which sustain life and create strength, which usually (as with most things) aren't so clearly visible.

She is approximately 6x6 inches and 7/8 of an inch thick. She is low fired which means she shouldn't be used permanently outdoors or in areas that receive constant water (like a shower stall). She'd do great in any kitchen or bathroom back splash, hanging on a wall (there are holes in the back to hang her), in a shadow box frame (mom's favorite option), on a plate stand for a desk ornament or amidst your book collection.

The process used to make these is a different from my usual relief tiles that are made from an original mold. Instead here, I sketch my design and create acetate stencils for where I want each layer of the drawing to come forward. Then in the studio, I roll out my clay, cut the pieces with my stencils and start layering, one on top of the other so the end result is a design that pops out of the tile's background. This allows me to get more detailed with my designs and it saves my hands too!
