Some of these arttiles might have unglazed areas as part of the design. These tiles are fired to stoneware temperatures rendering the surface largely impervious and are extremely durable and will be around for generations to come!

Artist statement: Gerrit Oosthuizen
The production of these handmade tiles take time ... lots of it ...!!! Reshaping, re sanding, refiring, reworking, ...!
The quantity and quality of the bubbles depends on the patient forming and shaping of the "holes" and the distribution and coloration of the holes influence my interaction with the object when applying the decorative brush marks.
The colour brief for this project entailed blue grays with the limited use of greens and blues breaking through. I would be enthralled with a request to use bold colour, bright and saturated, and if I can find the time will definitely develop a range with rich reds, burnt oranges and emerald greens!
