medieval thinking

If you find me via Mud Colony, welcome! If not, and you’re interested in more ceramic blogs, do have a look at the latest posts and artist’s interviews on Mud Colony

I found a really fab tile book, with this image of tiles, where the design is inspired by gothic arches and masonry details in churches and cathedrals. Yum.

I created a template based on the image and used it to pencil in the design on four tiles. The clay is St Thomas’

The slip is 5% Best Black Mason Stain.

The finished tiles, with a border… ETA forgot to add the end product!

      Thanks very much! I’m very much an experimenter, and I always ‘learn it from a boook’
