I've been playing again & this is what I've come up with.  The tile is about 6x6 inches.  I began by carving a fish into the leather hard clay along with a few underwater grasses.  I also shaped  separate fish, grass & bubbles that I affixed in front of the large fish to give depth to the tile.  The pieces were all fired separately & "glued" together when I glazed it but they could easily have been attached before the first firing. 

I'm pretty well pleased with this piece &, other than moving a few of the bubbles around, I wouldn't change much.

Fantastic piece.  I love the three dimensionality you've achieved, and the subject is very cute too.

this is beautiful and well done!  I love how much dimension you have given it!

Is it for hanging or will you be using as an accent piece for some home tiling?

Thank you for the nice comments,  It could be used for either purpose but, so far, I've been displaying it on a table on small easel.

Very nice! I love seeing other ceramic artists on craftster! Your tile is wonderful! I think it would look fantastic hanging on the wall.
