This is my third ever peice out of clay (made in art class), and its an engraved tile of a dragon. (The dragon's a she, I forgot why, but one of my classmates decided so...). Um, the photograph is pretty terrible, and the glazing came out horrible, aaagh! I hate the fact with glaze that you don't know how it will look like until its come out of the kiln! The celtic knots were probably the hardest and most tedious thing to carve. Other than the awful glazing, I think I rather like this peice.

Hail, O Mistress of celtic knots. This is beautiful. I love celtic knots, only they're so hard to do.

Hey! It's cousin! don't ask me how i ever even found this, but it looks really cool!
Oober (if thats even still you "word" any more. I also found it sounds a lot like that PB+J brand called goober)

:-) Jasmine 'Gollum' Dresner replies: "Wow! You found me online, how weird! It's spelled "uber", by the way. So what's new? Like my tile? I wound up giving it away in the end anyhow to someone (but he gave our family a PlayStation 2). I made duct tape sandals. Um... see you during the wedding then!"

For no special reason i decided to come here again and comment again...cause i felt like it! (actually, I was suffering of a bad case of boredom) I guess I'll say again that your tile is really cool and... yeah. Hey... I love duct tape sandals! I made a garbage pail out of raisins and dental floss! (well no i didn't, but it would be really cool if somebody did. Maybe I'll try that this summer)

The glazing may not have been what you wants, but it still created a nice effect. Did you paint the glaze on? Have you tried it again to get the effect you wanted? Maybe try painting it on a bit thicker. The design is great though.

This is gorgeous, I absolutely love it. Although I might've liked it more if the glaze was sapphire, I loved using that color when I did ceramics, it always came out beautifully.

I'd say that you did a realy good job on the tile. I've worked some with clay and glazes in High School and my glazeing didn't come out very good at times either. The design is very lovely and very intricate. Great job

Wow, this is so COOL!! What's wrong with the glazing? I think it's great! I admire your ability to not get any glaze where its not supposed to be (like the nice neutral background for instance)

Glazing is incredibly tricky. Clay is one of the few mediums were the artist has very little control over the finished product, I found it very very hard to let go when we worked with clay in Art Class. I wanted to tear my hair out when the burgundy glaze came out gray! You did fantastic! So few things turn out like they were supposed too when you take things out of the kiln. I suppose our ability to handle that shock and to deal with the ruin of our orignal idea shows, in a way, our true ability as artists to take lemons and make lemon sherbert. You show alot of patience and talent. Fantastic. Congrats.
