Bring back fond memories of your road trips with your best bud with this whimsical and colorful handmade ceramic tile.

Handmade terracotta tile with a carved and painted image of a guy taking his dog out for a drive in the town. 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
