Clay fingers

I'm always happy to get my hands dirty and part of whats been keeping me out of my garden has been this:

These tiles are the first of a series I'm doing as a 'splashback' for my oven. the theme being "things from my kitchen" & "things from the sea. The idea is that the use of colour will unite them.


Then...my tagine. Only big enough for a single serving I'm rather pleased with the result so far.

Wow, what a cool idea! Are you handpainting the tiles?

Yep, I need over a hundred in the end - scary but fun.

Great colour combo of turquoise and red, one of my favourites.

Love these Heloise. What a great idea to combine the sea and kitchen theme! Look forward to seeing the progress!

Please keep us informed of your progress. I want to see the finished results. Are you going to repeat patterns or add solid tiles?

Hi Kathryn, I'm not sure yet I'm waiting to see how a whole lot look together before I decide. Thanks for the encouragement.
