An exceedingly attractive hand made tile of pansies in warm colours, fresh and bright, lively and very clean.

A unique tile in my experience for the relief is created in clay, painted similarly to traditional impasto decoration but it is white rather than coloured slips. It was then fired, the colours painted and the tile glazed and glost fired. A rather laborious process creating bespoke majolica having the intricacy of hand painted patterns combined with relief in brilliant colours unavailable using traditional impasto decoration with coloured slips.

Verso lightly stained otherwise clean, embossed Flaxman, incised pattern number.
