Calico cat takes a nap in her favorite chair. Display this handmade ceramic tile on a wall, in an easel on a counter, or use as a coaster for your morning cup of coffee.

Handmade terracotta tile with a carved and painted image of a calico cat sleeping on a light blue overstuffed chair, with a green rug, and a light blue curtain valance framing the view out the window of purple flowers. The background of the design is warm white. Low fire with clear glaze, it is a "nominal" 4x4" (actual measurements are 3 7/8"H x 3 7/8"W x 3/8"D), sides of tile are terracotta. Tile comes with four cork pads on back and an embedded wire for hanging. See additional pictures for view of the terracotta sides and the back side.

A fine mesh crackle pattern adds texture to the surface and gives it a lovely patina of timelessness.

All my ceramic tiles are one of a kind, hand painted and hand carved. It is a 30 step process, all by hand. No molds are used. The wire on the back makes them great for hanging as a piece of art. They also lay flat for installation in kitchen backsplashes, tub surrounds or fireplaces.

DIMENSIONS: 3 7/8"H x 3 7/8"W x 3/8"D

I wanted to let you know the tiles arrived about two days after you sent them and they arrived safely. I have a small entry way where my back door is. I keep the cat dish's there and have decorated the area with cute cat related items, I call the entry the "kitty kitchen", I will be hanging the tiles in that area, they will be perfect there. I am looking forward to giving the "cat and antique chair" tile to my sister, she will love it too. Thanks again for everything. -K.C., Portland, OR
