All cone 5-fired tiles from Ochre clay that come
from drawings. Imprint tiles "stamp" the image into hand-rolled
slabs, each tile glazed individually, by hand, eye, and brush.
Most tiles come with a screw-size hole in each corner. Thus they can
be hung without the use of thinset. After being fired so high, glaze
will withstand the elements good for installation outdoors.
Each tile is roughly 6 inches square
and can be incorporated into wall tile layouts with standard tile sizes
Where the images come from ::
From bed in the morning thru our uncurtained window
Birds fly by.
Right now, end of February, a pair of Roadrunners chase each other
back and forth over the fence, as I have observed now for 3 or 4 years.
Daughter @ 18 mos. grabbed the stunned Mouse from our Cat and held
it in a trance.
One of our Neighbors Hens has sneaked into our yard now each
year to lay her clutch of eggs, and young daughter learned to grab
Crows congregate in our back Elm trees bare branches and drop
the pieces of stale danish they get from our other Neighbor into the
Garden Orb Spiders have set up webs in my clay shack, in the grape
vines, across the path to the faucet.
Summer evenings its easiest to see the Bats dart above our roof
in the dusk.
There are all the days I have stepped outside to hear the ker-le-oo
of Cranes flying their route from nesting grounds to winter warmth
in our valley, or back to their homes thousands of miles north.
Over back fence, Neighbors' pastures are hunting grounds guarded by
Kestrels from their perch on telephone wires.
Robins love my sister's yard, and listen for burrowing earthworms
beneath the Juniper.
In the dirt of the Placitas yard, Cota (Navajo tea), grows in key
places, not having been planted by hand.
