What does Freedom Mean to You?

Freedom Tile

As a spirit animal, the horse represents power, service, and freedom.  Hernando DeSoto brought Spanish mustangs to the New World in the 1500s, and the Choctaw Pony is a descendant of those magnificent creatures. The Choctaw people were dependent upon them for hunting parties and they carried many on the Trail of Tears to Oklahoma from our homeland in Mississippi.

This beautiful 4″ 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 is carefully carved away to reveal the message blowing in the wind. Other images are carved and color is precisely inlaid. 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.

Either way

It’s the perfect gift for your sweetheart, a graduate, bride, or mom. Everyone can use a reminder to be grateful – even you.
