This custom made tile was made with greatest attention to all of the detail I had asked. The picture does not do it justice. The artist made every effort to make sure I was happy with the design, the finished product and the delivery. I will be ordering more from this site in the future. I highly recommend this artist.

About

Handmade ceramic tiles to brighten up your home

From an early interest in relief printing the transition into carving tiles felt natural. I was further attracted to tiles by their utility. They allow us to integrate art into our daily lives on a fireplace, as a trivet, in a shower or kitchen. I feel that this is a fortunate time to be an artisan with the resurgence of interest in the hand- made. I enjoy and take great care in every step of the process; from idea, through drawing, carving and kiln to a finished piece to enliven your home.

After planning and drawing the design, I carve the original in a smooth clay. Next I make a plaster mold of the design. The tiles are then slip cast (liquid clay is poured in to the mold) to capture the fine detail. After drying the tiles slowly over several days, they are fired to be hard but still porous, the bisque fire. They are then painted with underglaze and refired to completely seal the surface. A clear glaze may also be added for a gloss finish.
