Garden Sign - HandMade Eco Organic Rainbow Flower Gardening Tile Decoration - Whimsical Stamped Rustic Floral Plaque - Gardener Gift
To GARDEN is to Cultivate or Tend something. To "lay it out" and then take care of it. I can easily think of my life in those terms. Planning out my course and then taking the action needed, cultivating and tending my energies, to create a beautiful Garden Tapestry of my life. Now that's some walking down the Garden path!!

This beautiful tile wall hanging is made from rolled out stoneware clay that has been hand stamped with Vintage textile blocks from India that are about 100 years old,(and carved out of pear wood!), as well as some Antique letterpress stamps for the Butterflies and the word GARDEN. You can see some of the Vintage stamps in the last Thumbnail photo, aren't they Cool? Just Imagine all the type they printed in old Newspapers and such before they came to work with me in Clay! :)
I have applied stains to the bisqued clay and then rubbed them off here and there to give the piece a rustic look, then I added a few colored glazes to accentuate the stamped design. It has been fired a second time for durability and strength to create an inspiring piece that can be hung indoors or outside in a protected area. . The hanger is made from recycled copper wire and strung with tiny glass beads of varying colors.
The hanging is about 9 1/2" long (including the copper wire) and 5" wide and signed and dated on the back by yours truly.
♥Note on PHOTOGRAPHY: This tile looks different in different light, so ALL the photos you see are accurate depending on where you hang this lovely piece and what time of day it is!
