This is an Arts & Crafts tile my honey sculpted. It was a design made for the William Morris company to be made into a stained glass window. Don’t know if it was ever done. I molded it, made a cold cast copper casting (resin and copper) and then antiqued it with a patina and wax. I finished it off with a frame out of quartersawn white oak with ebony pinned mortise and tenon joints. Water based aniline dyes, lacquer and wax. It’s not that big a deal but I just wanted to show her work. It measures about 12” X 17”.

I’ve admired Dan’s sculpted and framed tiles and this is really a cool looking piece as well. You guys are inspiring me to try doing more cast tiles. The sculpting work would be fun I think. Nicely framed, great piece,

What a great pair!

Was this a gift, or for yourselves, or a sale piece?

Your frame is perfect for that. What a beautiful tile! And the whole is 17” tall, a great size for hanging anywhere and making a big impression. Very very nice.
