All of the tiles are 6″ x 6″ or smaller; they’re made of stoneware clay.
The figurines are about 3″ tall. They came into existence out of a moment of serendipity – I wanted to try to make a little three-legged pot like one I had bought some years ago. The result, though it had three legs and was recognizably a pot, it was just off the mark. I was about to mash the clay into a lump and start over, but – On a whim I pinched the top shut. The result looked like a little creature to me. I gave him a face and some hands and there he was. Since then I have made many of these creatures, no two alike.
