This handmade ceramic tile with hummingbird and tree motif is a combination of a pressed design embellished and surrounded by unique hand carving. The 4"x4" center of the piece was made by carving into a rubbery lino block like sheet called "Safety Cut" with Speedball carving tools. This tile is a unique variation. I will post a few other variations soon. I am making a series of the 4"x4" tiles for the Artisan Tile Northwest Handmade Tile Show at the Center for Urban Horticulture in Seattle October 5th & 6th.
