Small Spider magnet for any spooky time of the year!

Homage to a spider that I squashed...tiny version of handmade ceramic tile.

The image of this spider has been carved and pressed into clay to create a small tile. I've glazed this one with an underglaze black that has been wiped off to show the details, and then overglazed with a transparent turquoise gloss. A super strong magnet is securely attached to the back. It measures approximately 1 3/4 wide" x 2 1/8" 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 pin or a hanging ornament - just let me know and I'll make it so!

I based this small tile on an original larger one that I carved as homage to a spider that I squashed. In all fairness to myself, it clearly crossed the personal space boundaries posted in my studio policies. AND, it came upon me without notice, and JUMPING at that, so it wasn't pre-meditated squashing, but it was well deserved. I don't make it a habit of squashing spiders, and when they appear near or on me when I'm outside, I usually just brush them away. I admit this one gave me quit a start. Hey, even Miss Muffett, who I hear was known for her calm, collected manner, reacted in a poor fashion when surprised by an arachnid.

An English country-side chapel is depicted on this lovely hand-made ceramic tile.

Raised lines hold and separate the different glazes that highlight this design. I hand-painted each glaze into the different sections.
Satin matte glazes -
white for the clouds
blue for the sky
brown for the church building
and glossy forest green for the lawn

It measures approximately 3 1/4" square, varying slightly due to its handmade nature.

I carved the design into a plaster blank, creating raised lines in the pressed clay tile, which holds and separates the glazes.

I have 2 pcs. glazed in this combination, and altogether 4 pcs. of this design - see the last photo. There is another design that goes with tile of a windmill in the countryside.

Tiny tarantula spiders....lots of them! I created the image and then permanently fired it onto one of my small handmade tiles - fun for Halloween or any time of the year!

I rolled a thin slab of porcelain clay and cut it into a small tile, smoothed the edges and the back, and fired it for the first time. Then I glazed it with a soft satin matte stoneware glaze and fired it a second time to 2165 F (cone 6). After that I added a laser decal of spiders and fired it for the third time to 1954 (cone 04) to permanently adhere the image to the surface of the glazed tile. The back has been left unglazed and is very smooth to the touch. A very strong neodymium magnet is permanently attached to the back.

It measures approximately 1 7/8" wide x 2 1/4 tall".

If you'd rather have me make this into an ornament, just send me a convo and I'll make it so!

Please convo me with any questions or special glaze color requests. Thanks!!

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.

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

This charming handmade tile depicts an acorn cap surrounded by 4 acorns, four oak leaves and 4 more acorns nestled in the edges of the leaves. The image is inspired from Victorian era design. I've glazed this tile in a textured sage green/grey stoneware matte glaze. It measures approximately 3 7/8" square, varying slightly due to it's handmade nature.

I carved the design in wax, then poured a plaster mould. The mould is then hand-pressed into wet porcelain clay, fired, glazed, and fired again. A beautiful tile to set in your kitchen or fireplace.

This listing is for ONE piece of acorn tile - if you'd like more, please let me know and I'll make a custom listing for you.

Here is one happy frog fiddling away!

The image of this frog has been carved and pressed into clay to create a small tile. I've glazed this one in a transparent fern green crackle -- actually bit bluer than the image shows. A super strong magnet is securely attached to the back. It measures approximately 1 3/4 wide" x 2 1/8" 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!
