Announcement   Cirrelda's Tiles :::: a branch of the art tree called La Alameda Press :::: Handmade tiles from the Rio Grande valley in high desert - Albuquerque, New Mexico

All cone 5-fired 'Garden Companion' tiles are made with Ochre clay (occasionally Sandia or Anasazi, too) and come from my own drawings. Hand-rolled slabs are pressed into handmade molds of my image. Each tile is glazed individually, by hand, eye, and brush.

Number tiles are made with sets of metal hardware store numbers, smaller ones with 'curlier' style (2.25x3.75"), larger ones with 'swashier' style (3.25x4.5"). These tiles are also fired high to cone 5, so weatherproof, and are usually made with the buff colored 'Ochre' clay. You will also see tiles made with the red, "Sandia" clay.

Most tiles come with a screw-size hole in each corner, unless you request otherwise. Thus they can be hung without the use of thinset. After being fired so high, glaze will withstand the elements good for installation outdoors.

Each tile is roughly 4 or 6 inches square and can be incorporated into wall tile layouts with standard tile sizes, or adhered with thinset onto walls, either indoor or outdoor.

I love everything about these. The seller contacted me with a timeline and was polite and friendly. The house numbers are exactly what I expected. Superb.

About

Shop Story

When we settled down in Alameda in 1985, I built an 8x12 foot shed open to the backyard, inspired by "Pot Hollow," the place for clay at Ghost Ranch. My nephew created a sign for it when I began to teach clay classes there in earnest. My clay classes are called "cirrelda's clases de clay," honoring my Spanglish reality.

Three panels for the "Protect Our Wildlife Corridors Community Mosaic" have been constructed at Pot Hollow South.

Thank you for stopping by on your computer!
As profile says, illustration and clay is my way.
The handmade nature of these tiles means that each one's size and glazing will vary slightly, though the relief texture will be the same from the original press mold created from my drawing.
