Tiles - OBOE fiber/clay

OBOE Ceramics and Fiber

Go to content
All my tiles are hand made.  I roll the clay to a uniform thickness and then cut around paper patterns in whatever shape I choose.  The reason I don't buy ready-made tile is because I feel the handmade tile hold the warmth, or the essence, of the maker.  When I hold one of my tiles in one hand and a tile from Home Depot, to me the Home Depot tile feels lifeless, cold and dead.  Even when my tile is icy cold it still retains my warmth.  And the tiles are not perfect.  The Japanese have a word for this: wabi-sabi, meaning flawed beauty, nothing is perfect, nothing is finished.  So that is my philosophy.  All images on my tiles are hand painted.  There are no decals here.  If you have a theme that you would like portrayed, let me know and I'll work up a design especially for you.  Enjoy!
