Inspired by a legendary, mystical place called Avalon, this beautiful set of decorative art tiles, made of colored porcelain is framed to stand 20" high (51 cm) x 8" wide (20.3 cm) and is signed and dated.

Housed in a high quality, gunmetal (glossy dark gray) metal frame and under glass, this lovely collection will inspire and intrigue. "Avalon" (aka Fortunate Isle) was chosen as its title because "the name of the Isles of the Fortunate signifies that they bear all good things".

Five tiles are mounted to a double-matted, archival, ivory base mat. Each tile has a depth of only a few millimeters but stands out from the base mat at about 1/4" from its mounting, to add dimension.

Each tile is hand-created as a single piece but with regard to the flow and relationship to the piece as a whole. I apply several layers of porcelain on top of a base color and etch away the layers using water and a resist. A bit of accent underglazes are hand-painted onto the high-fired piece and a final coat of gloss glaze is applied to bring out the color. Each piece is a one-of-a-kind, happily made in my studio at the Beaver Mill.
