Here's another for all you book lovers out there. Don't decorate with books! Read them and buy this tile to decorate with instead. I couldn't resist creating another one, this one a little larger and with different textures than my Bookshelf Tile.

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!

It is approximately 6x6 inches and 7/8 of an inch thick. It is low fired which means it shouldn't be used permanently outdoors or in areas that receive constant water (like a shower stall). It'd do great in any kitchen or bathroom back splash, hanging on a wall (there are holes in the back to hang it), in a shadow box frame (mom's favorite option), on a plate stand for a desk ornament or amidst your book collection. A friend of mine bought the Bookshelf Tile and placed it in a shadow box frame for her fiance with a quote from one of his favorite books. It made a cool gift.

Frequently asked questions about CorduroyClay

I will only do custom orders for existing designs. Within these designs, I can do any number of quantity or existing glaze colors. Special orders generally take 4-6 weeks, longer for larger orders, so just message me and I'll let you know.
Sizes listed are approximate measurements, not exact.
All of my place settings and dinnerware pieces are food safe and can be used in the oven, microwave and dishwasher. I use all my own wares, so they've been tried and tested for years. The only thing I don't recommend is using them in the oven if the dish was in the refrigerator. The drastic change from cold to hot could cause cracking or breaking.

All of the tiles (unless otherwise stated for some of the older ones) are high fired and safe to use inside, outside and in areas that get a lot of water. They can be installed or hung by a small nail.
