Hand-made tile installation

These images are taken of a project I worked on for a client. They are stoneware tile that were formed from slabs of raw clay and hand-cut for the design. The slabs were allowed to dry and then fired at 4 to bisque at which point I painted them by hand with brush and underglazes. They were refired at 06 to finish. As you can see a truly custom and unique piece.

I researched the design thoroughly. The out come is 9 ft of a formal Italian garden landscape that includes the Villa Borghese and approx. 6 ft of an Italian countryside (campagna) including Villa Capra (Villa Rotunda).

The clients, Sherry Hayslip and Cole Smith, are very pleased.
