This piece is made from approximately 3-inch square handmade tiles that are slab rolled. The tiles background has a subtle texture. Each pair of tiles has a matching drawing, then bisque fired at cone 04. Then each tile is individually colored with under glazes, like painting on a canvas. Finally, a clear glaze is applied, and the tiles are refired at cone 05. Once all tiles are fired, they are laid out and adhered to a handmade and hand-painted frame by the artist.
