The reason they're called TEST tiles

So the reason they're called "test" tiles is to see if your idea for a glaze will work.

So this one OBVIOUSLY didn't work.  I have light green mud slung over my delicate shapes.  Oh well, back to the drawing board....

I made some more of these tiles on Friday so that I can "test" them again.  A couple of people gave me ideas that I'm going to try, and I'll let you know.  

I did have a few successes, though, and here they are:

My very first foray back into porcelain:  three little pitchers.  They're white on the inside and different colors on the outside.  I'm very happy with them.  

The last is one of my luminarias with a new color combination:  Oribe over California Red.  I really like the way the colors ran together.  I did a berry bowl in that combo as well.  It was great.  Threw five things away:  they were either cracked or just plain ugly.  It happens.  


  1. I LOVE those pitchers! I also love the dishes of yours (and a vase) we already have . . .one day I will come to your shop and pick up a whole bunch of stuff!

  2. don't like the glaze but LOVE the tile design! the pitchers & the luminaria turned out great!
