Oh no...this is the mirror over the sink. I guess that's not very clear. But THANKS!  Grin I have more crows in the shower, but that's not quite done yet. (It's not quite as elaborate as the mirror, anyway).

Thanks everyone!

Incredible piece! Rockin'!  Smiley

Want to make sure I understand what you mean by the process you used...You created the tiles and carved the design into the wet clay?

Yep! Basically just roll out huge slabs of clay (I have a big slab roller) and start carvin' it up where you want grout lines. Then divide it into manageable chunks. Bisque fire, glaze (this one used Mayco Wonderglazes, but I use stoneware glazes now), then glaze fire.

It's a bit tricky to get things to stay flat and deal with such big slabs, but it's fun. I've got my own studio in my garage that I've been building up for the past several years. I get distracted by my other projects, but hopefully in the near future I can focus more on tile.
