I’ve been making tiles in a different way recently – I’ve been painting with underglaze on commercially made already-bisqued tiles. I described the process in an earlier post about some small tiles I did in January. I’m going to show some more over the next two weeks in honor of the Tile Festival I’ll be participating in in mid-May at the Moravian Tile Works in Doylestown, PA.
A few of these tiles are glazed, and where I did so, I’ll note it, but most of them are simply done in underglaze and left unglazed. I have set them in frames (not shown) and they are meant to hang on a wall, not be used as functional objects. I like the matte look of these tiles very much and I’m enjoying the change in technique from the relief tiles I’ve done in the past.
Ok, be warned – there is a series coming and this is the first installment. All the tiles are 6″ x 6″, by the way.
