Ace of Pentacles Tile

Ace of PentaclesFinally got my kiln working, and was able to glaze some of the tiles I’d made last year (or was it two years ago?)  I had the idea of basing some tiles off of the Tarot, because Tarot cards are defined enough to provide concrete parameters, yet still have room for personal interpretation.  I doubt I will do the entire deck.

To make this design, I used B-mix clay and a slab roller. Then I tinted some b-mix slip with black stain and used a jacquard bottle to trail the lines.  It is neither easy nor the best technique.
