Sixteen Tiles

As the conclusion of my texture study, I had to create the 4×4 inch tile that was represented in my sample Rhino model. Once the one tile was made, I used it to cast a mold, so that I could press sixteen tiles that would show my overall pattern.

 

 

After pressing sixteen successful tiles, they were fired in a kiln. After cleaning the tiles up, I arranged them into my desired pattern. This led me to discover that they were not perfect squares, like I had intended. The edges did not line up perfectly, which I know understand was largely because of the flexibility of clay and my lack of experience with the material.
