Tiles & Tribulations #5

Tiles & Tribulations #5
Things going well on the delft tile trail. Here an earthenware tile with the traditional image of a Hare seated upon a tussock. As well as testing the contrast between fill/ wash and line, I also wanted to see how the (Chromium Oxide) green carnation corner motifs would look, as I've a fire-place tile project for later in the year that (ideally) calls for them. Pretty happy with the result.
The tile as painted…

...and after firing and ageing.
