home portfolio tiles  

PROCESS: I use handmade slabs of white stoneware with grogs to create the shape of the tile. Then, I cut of a hole for the glass. After adding texture and decoration to the tile, I dry it slowly. Bisque fire at Cone 05 - 03. After the Glazing, I fire again at Cone 05 - 02. Then, I cut of a piece of glass (with the size of the back hole of the tile) from a sheet of glass. I decorate it with cooper wire, colored glass and ceramics stains, and fire it at low (fusing) temperature. At the end, I attach the already fused glass on the back of the tile. Usually, one tile needs 3 to 4 firings to be completed.
