My subject matter is inspired by nature and rendered in clay: MUD; seen through the filter of my mind: Pi, thus "MUD Pi". I create mid-fired artistic tile and hand-built stoneware objects inspired by The Arts and Crafts movement, Architecture, Nature & Gardening.
Each tile starts with a design and is created by first building a positive and than casting a mold. The clay is rolled into a slab and pressed into the mold. The tiles are hand trimmed and hand glazed with a paintbrush from many glazes that I mix in the studio. Layering a number of glazes creates the unique glaze colors and mottled surfaces. The tiles are fired to cone 6. The amount of handwork involved creates variations and each tile is unique.
A selection of MUD Pitm tiles and Objects can be found online at my Etsy® Shop.
