SERENDIPITY IN TILES

I don't normally make tiles, but I produced a few for my talk and demonstration at the Buckinghamshire Pottery and Sculpture Society last week - the idea was to have a square on which I could show how different techniques of decorating work.  On this tile, I quickly applied a few dashes of wax emulsion mixed with blue stain, then painted stripes of yellow and dark blue over them to give an idea of the texture they produced. The effect is actually different from what I've done on my pots before, illustrating the fact that sometimes you can get good results under pressure and without due consideration. I may make a few tiles like this in the future.
