Artist's Description

Reminiscent of classical Moroccan tile, and of ancient Thebes! Only this work is textured!
Some of these componants are found also in the US Desert Southwest.
Lovely, happy colors, wonderful for a single focal point in a tile wall, a table-top done in a group of 4 or 8, or as a sunny backsplash over a sink or cook-top. A cheerful, sunny way to work or relax.
(Also see in non-textured):

I remember when we had a table made of tiles something like this one. I was a little kid, with my first tricycle, and on rainy days, Mom let me ride it in the house. (To wear me out, I think.)
The day I remember particularly, she was telling me to slow down, “Dayonda, you’re going to hurt yourself on that table!” she predicted. And sure enough, tearing around the living room as I was, I crashed right on the corner of the table. The corner was of wood but it was pretty sturdy, and I gave myself a fine gash in my left eyebrow.
Mom went nuts when either of us kids bled, but she gathered herself together and made a “butterfly” bandage out of a sticky wound tape and stuck me back together herself, not wanting me to have scars from a needle.
So I still have a lighning streak shaped bald line in my left eyebrow, but I don’t have any scars from having it stitched.
The funny part is that I have always loved that table, and when I finally had to part with it, in my early 20s, I was just heart-broken. I’d like to have another one made, hence my designing of tiles…
If and when I ever get my floor fixed and furnish this place, it will be a real hodge-podge.
But I only have to please myself ! 8D
