The person I made this for does not like it as it does not look enough like the real thing.

She wanted the balastrade not a wall and the hedges look like lumps of glass rather than hedges. I cannot refire it as it will all go flat as I already fired it twice so that I could add the tree which I had made separately. So I think I will have to start again.

Thanks for your support - I think I am going to make what I like in future, anyway. It is very difficult to make things that are exactly like, rather than inspired by, a particular place. This is especially true when I am working on a tile 12cm (approximately 5 inches) square.

@Bendog: I agree with you, that you should make what you like. I do quite a bit of custom work, but I always caution my clients that a certain bit of "kiln magic" always happens and their piece may not turn out exactly as they had envisioned. So far, so good!

And seriously, the person you made it for is crazy.

FWIW, I like your last three pieces so much that I pinned them on Pinterest!
