New - Message Tile
The woodpecker totem is known to represent Opportunity. It’s also known as the News Bird, and for that reason the Choctaw newspaper is called Biskinik (Choctaw for woodpecker).
Your message appears to be “blowin’ in the wind”.
This beautiful tile is handmade by rolling out a slab of stoneware clay, and cutting to size. When leather hard, the tile is covered with three layers of black under glaze, then covered entirely with wax. The chosen word or phrase is outlined in pencil, and clay carved away to reveal the message blowing in the wind. Other images are carved and color inlay is added. It is first fired to 1987 degrees, then a clear glaze is applied and fired to 2167 degrees. The end result resembles scratch board or wood cuts.
You get to decide
The tile can be set in the lid of an elegant keepsake box with glossy black finish and a kitten-soft velvet interior. Put a little something sparkly inside and you will be the hero!
Or how about
Having it mounted in a beautiful black frame. The frame can be hung on the wall or used as a trivet on the counter.
It’s the perfect gift for your sweetheart, a graduate, bride, or mom. What better message than “Dream Big”?
