Mini tile set – Autumnal creatures

I love autumn in Melbourne. The relief from summer’s heat, the crisp, cool edge to sunny days, the excuse to start pulling out my lovely winter jackets but still being able to wear skirts…

Australian autumn is nowhere near as spectacular as North American or European autumn of course – most native Australian trees keep their foliage for the whole year. But the deciduous trees that have been transplanted here do turn such beautiful colours in autumn, and these tiles were inspired by that.

Each tile is about 4cm square and is made with a mix of colours and Ultra Light, making it perfect for magnets, pendants or brooches. The ivory clay has veins of translucent swirled through, creating a lovely marbled effect once baked.
