HOW IM MADE

These little ceramic tile books are totally unique and made by hand, although they are small they are as labour intensive as a large book, this is reflected in the price.

The stoneware clay is rolled out and stamped with a design and left to dry for two weeks before firing in the kiln, its then sanded cleaned and glazed before going in the kiln a second time.

Then the fun begins, I have always enjoyed paper crafts so this is a relaxing way to spend the evening. The paper is cut and folded and creased individually so they lie flatter. 40 times for a little book.

The papers are gathered into 5 signatures of 5 sheets giving 50 pages to draw on. Each signature is then sewn to the ceramic tiles using Coptic stitch which allows the book to lie flat.

Finally, the inserts are added in the front and back covers and the book is left under some pressure to help it settle into shape.
