This handmade ceramic tile depicts the profile of a woman circa the Victorian era, and was created to adorn the facade of a fireplace. It can be used anywhere in your home to create a stunning centerpiece.
It was custom carved for the Ravenswood Historical Site in Livermore, CA., to sit opposite one of our other female portraits. The whole layout can be seen in the last photo.
The tile measures approximately 5 7/8" square, and is glazed in fern green glossy crackle glaze.
I carved the image in wax and then poured a plaster mould, which was then pressed into wet clay using our hand press. After first firing in our "bisque" fire, the tiles was glazed and re-fired to about 2150*F. A beautiful and permanent addition to any fireplace, kitchen, or bath.

Returns & exchanges
I’ve been making tiles since 1979, and haven’t had much experience with customers who are unhappy with the quality of my tile. That said.....I take pride in making sure my customers are extremely happy with their purchase. If you aren’t happy, please convo me and I’ll make it right.
If you’d like to return a tile, I’ll refund the price of the tile and the cost of shipping. Your money will be refunded once the piece safely arrives back at its location of creation. If you’d like to swap it for another, just let me know. You will, however, be responsible for both shipping costs of sending the unhappy tile back and receiving the replacement.
