So how are the tiles made?...STEP 1

February 3, 2015

It all starts with need.  When I need a pattern, design or tile that I don't already have, making a new one is in order.  The first step is a drawing usually on bond paper which is strong yet flexible when damp.  The drawing is then smoothed onto a slab of moist clay and the design is carefully traced using a ball point pen which will glide over the damp paper without tearing it.  Tracing leaves a clear impression of the drawing on the soft clay surface which becomes the guide for the carving to follow.
