Tiles from December, 2016 – Group 6

I move to another category of tiles.

These next few groups are made from terra-cotta. They are tiles I rolled out myself, so they are irregular in size and shape, though all about 6″ x 6″. Each tile was fired, glazed, and then fired again. I’ve included a blank tile to show you what I started with.

    I’ve made several artworks of this tree – it is in a park I exercise in – and for some reason it really has made an impression on me. I do think it’s magic.

    Thank you. I used underglaze as well as underglaze chalk on that one to get the color. I like the myth idea. So many simple scenes can be extended into a larger symbolic context, I think.
