Framed stoneware tile. Antique bronze acid patina finish.
Quartersawn white oak.

All my tiles start as mahogany relief woodcarvings,then … made into plaster molds, pressed stoneware clay and kiln fired to 2375

Carved the mahogany master for the landscape tile based on a pen and ink drawing given to me by world renowned author, artist, illustrator and sculptor,Bill Nelson.

Another spectacular piece, Dan. I’ll have to sell some pens and save up to bid on one someday soon. They seem to be a must-have for me.

I love these tile and frames that you make Dan. Keep up the good work. I know you probably said it before, but what is the size of this tile? I see the frame is 20×17, but missed the tile size.

Another beauty, Dan. Maybe someday I’ll be able to make something look that good...

That quarter sawn oak is sooooooo pretty. I wouldn’t even know where to get some. I doubt that the local lumber yard would have any. Do you have to special order that from some specialty house?

Found the tile mold this weekend and am pressing a few more tiles. This is the mold I used to make
“the clearing” tile series. As stated above I made the mold from a mahogany wood carving. I still have the carving and the mold has made about 70 tiles. It is getting worn, but still produces decent tiles.
