Lovebirds

12 Apr

Here is the finished artwork related to an earlier post on mold making for ceramic tiles.  This grouping of framed tiles is called “Lovebirds”.  I created two bird molds in reverse of each other and made another mold from a hand carved slab of clay for the center tile.  After the tiles were sufficiently dried, I fired them in an electric kiln to 1873 Degrees F.  Since I have molds to make duplicates, I will be creating similar tiles in different types of clay and glazing processes.  I am working on them now and will post those when I am finished.
