This limited-edition Baby Grouse tile from the 'Old School House' range would make a perfect housewarming gift or an ideal 9th Wedding anniversary gift.
Inspired by the vintage flooring in what used to be Grange Primary School, Millisle, these hand decorated tiles depict a range of real and mythical animals and plants. Hand crafted using porcelain clay, each one is unique, numbered and comes with a certificate of authentication from the artist.
Current designs include the Domestic Goose, Honeysuckle and Baby Grouse with more to come.
The red grouse is found across the UK and has a reputation for being territorial. A flash of red can be seen as competition and the males have been known to react angrily to a red car. To be a grouse is to be associated with grumbling and complaining about trivial things.
Each tile is individually hand made by artist Zara Lyness and as such each one will be unique (just like her!) with designs and colours varying - giving each tile a character all of its own.
Each tile comes with a certificate of authenticity.
There are three options for this tile - Mounted on handmade stoneware in black or red, or unmounted. All three options are ready to hang
Mounted: Weight 550g approx , Size 160x160x55mm approx
The porcelain tile is hand cut and the relief is built up with layers of porcelain, adding and carving to shape the final design the tiles are then bisque fired and highlighted with coloured underglazes using fine brushes before the transparent glossy glaze is applied. Each piece goes through a final firing and is ready for mounting. Due to the care and attention taken at each stage orders cannot be rushed so please do allow 2-3 weeks for delivery.
