home portfolio tiles  

PROCESS: I use handmade slabs of white stoneware with grogs to create the tiles. Than I cut of a hole for the glass. After adding texture and decoration to the tiles I dry them slowly. I Bisque fire at Cone 05. After Glazing I fire again at Cone 06 - 03.
Then I cut the glasses (with the size of the back hole of the tile) from sheet of glass. Decorate them with cooper wire, color glass and ceramics stains and fire it at low temperature. When everything is fired I attach the already decorated and fired glass on the back of the tile. Usually one tile needs 3 to 4 firings to be completed.
