There Are Always More

Here is an assortment of @ 2″ x 2″ clay tiles I made in January, 2019. I can’t stop making them, it seems – and why not, when they are so much fun? The small size keeps the design work simple and the sheer number of them means I can try anything I want. Just perfect.

White or terracotta clay, fired at cone 06, using Velvet underglazes for the coloring.

      Thank you. I know, I thought the same thing, they look like something you could eat. I guess you could ice those little cakes in this way, right? Because unfortunately these tiles, well, take a bite and say goodbye to your teeth!

          People do, though most don’t, and it takes them a long time to choose. I sell them for very little money and buying one vs say, three, is not much of a difference, but some people just want the one and they will find that one that is the best for them. It makes it special to them in a different way than the grouping idea. Interesting how people do things, as always!

      Thank you, I usually work with a large group of them at a time (since that way I can open only one jar of underglaze at a time and resist the temptation to hurry and omit cleaning my brush in between colors) and I think that lends some uniformity to them but at the same time lets me just go along making patterns however I like.

      Thank you. I like arranging them at the show on the table. I always forget how lively they look since I usually focus on them one at a time, when I make them.
