Butterfly Tiles

Finally decided it’s time to post some of my pottery/ceramic work beginning with these butterfly tiles.  The images came from a couple of rubber stamps that I have.  And, yes, it’s possible to use rubber stamps on clay.

The hard part was letting them dry a bit and then painting the details with underglaze.  Then came the harrowing part of bisque firing them and hoping that they didn’t crack.  Fortunately, they didn’t.

They were finished in a rake firing using a clear crackle glaze.  Then, I added hangers on the back of them so they could be used on the wall.

They’ve both been sold and I hope their new owners are enjoying them.
