Summertime Tiles Part #2

I made a lot of tiles in August 2019. As you know, it’s the nature of doing clay that it comes in batches, because you need to accumulate a kiln-load for firings. You don’t produce a tile from start to finish, then work on the next one. You make a lot and they travel the process together. Let’s look at such a group.

Here’s the second group. I have to show you. Low-fire clay, Velvet underglazes, fired at cone 06, August, 2019.

    These are all fabulous. I love that red curl in the final tile. I love what I am thinking of as a sheep fleece jacket in the first tile. My favourite of this bunch is somewhat surprisingly not the dejected looking cat. My favourite is the second tile. Something about the way the background is “invading” the form of the figure is very pleasing to my eye.

      Thank you. The negative space way of working really leads me down some ways of depicting things that I would not do if I were drawing out a figure. This is one of those times. I really like the result here, too.

      Thank you. I like making these tiles – there is no planning, just setting on the colors and letting one thing lead to the next. It is relaxing and fun, and I am glad you liked the results.
