These tiles were made by hand carving rubber stamps and pressing them into stoneware clay. They were glaze fired to Cone 10. Here is a tutorial I wrote about carving rubber stamps: http://www.limegreennews.com/howcarv.html And here is another about making ceramic tiles from rubber stamps: http://www.carolynsstampstore.com/catalog/mosaic_table_top_with_textured_clay_tiles.php
Strip of tile by my pantry door. The large ochre colored tiles were made by me and so were some of the other smaller ones. Other tiles were either salvaged or purchased. Grout will be a dark terra cotta color.
