Angel from the Annunciation - holiday ornament - based on an Angel at the Cloisters in NYC.

The image of this angel has been carved and pressed into clay to create a small tile. I've glazed this one with a transparent azure blue green crackle. A small ribbon for hanging is securely attached to the back. It measures approximately 1 7/8 wide" x 2 1/2" tall.

I carved the image in wax and then poured a plaster mould. After extruding a thin slab of porcelain clay, the plaster mould is pressed into the clay, the tile is cut around the edges. After drying, the edges are sponged, the tile is fired, glazed, and fired again. A lot of work for a little piece of art! Each one is slightly different - because they're handmade!

If you'd prefer to have it made into a magnet or pin - just let me know and I'll make it so!

Everyone of my small ornaments and magnets come packaged in a small cellophane bag with a decorative card....perfect for gift giving!

Victorian Style Valentine Heart with Rose and Ribbon for that special person in your life!

This small tile has the image of a Victorian Valentine heart embossed with a rose and hanging from a ribbon - a beautiful gift for that special someone! It measures about 1 5/8" wide X 2" tall. I glazed it with an underglaze black, rubbed the black off the surface - keeping it in the details, and glazed it over with my lovely turquoise crackle.

I carved the design in wax, then I poured a plaster mould and hand pressed it into a thin porcelain clay slab, cut, cleaned, fired, glazed, and fired again. A lot of work for such a little piece of art! Every tile is slightly different, due to their hand made nature.

I've taken this delicately carved little tile and attached a small ribbon for hanging, securely on the back.

Dressed in a top-hat and scarf, this very happy snowman is reaching up to the sky to welcome a new snow. And if you live in the Northeast, like I do, you better get ready for it!

A small carved image of cherry blossoms is the second style in my newest handmade tile ornaments - it depicts a branch with 2 cherry blossom blooms - this one has a border surrounding it. It was inspired by a much larger tile panel that I recently carved, and that I'll be listing here soon.

This one has my glossy turquoise crackle - a rich Victorian style glaze that flows from the raised areas and pools darker into the recesses - very lovely! I've taken this delicately carved little tile and attached a small ribbon for hanging securely on the back. It measures 2 1/4" x 1 3/4".

I'm happy to glaze any of my ornaments in any of the glazes that you find in my shop - and if you don't see a color you'd like, please convo me and ask!

I carve my design in wax and then pour a small plaster mould. A hand press is used to press the moulds into a thin slab of porcelain cay. After firing, I brush each ornament with glaze and refire. A lot of work for a tiny piece of art!!

Angel of Peace - ornament for your holiday tree or present gift tag

The image on this tile is based on a photograph of a carving from the tomb of Leonardo Bruni in Florence, Italy, that I took when we visited. It measures approximately 2 3/8" wide x 1 3/4" tall, and this one is glazed in my lovely turquoise crackle. A small ribbon is fixed securely on the back.

I carved the image in wax and then poured a plaster mould. After extruding a thin slab of porcelain clay, the plaster mould is pressed into the clay, the tile is cut around the edges. I then pressed type letters spelling out "PEACE" into the blank message slate that the Angel carries. After drying, the edges are sponged, the tile is fired, glazed, and fired again. A lot of work for a little piece of art!

Snowflake ornaments for your holiday tree or present gift tags for those special people in your life.

These small handmade tiles have 3 different snowflake designs pressed into the surfaces, each highlighted with a black underglaze, that sits in the recessed lines. Two of them measure about 2" square, the third measures about 1 7/8" square. I painted underglaze black on the tile and wiped it off the surface, leaving the black in the recesses to highlight the carving. Then I glazed them over with my bright sunny yellow gloss crackle.

The designs were first carved in wax, plaster moulds were poured, then hand pressed into a thin porcelain clay slab, cut, cleaned, fired, glazed, and fired again. A lot of work for such little pieces of art! Every tile is slightly different, due to their hand made nature.

I've taken these delicately carved little tiles and attached small ribbons for hanging, securely on the backs.
