Ragwort Terracotta Tile


Ragwort tile

Ships From: United Kingdom (UK)

Sold By : Karen Chard Artist Category: Tags: , , , , , , , ,


This tile was imprinted with ragwort from my garden as the flowers were going over, before they became seed heads. The Cinnabar moth is dependent on ragwort for its caterpillars as it is their main food source.
My tiles are all individually made by hand, they are rustic, uneven and wonky, sizes are approximate and vary for each tile. If you are looking for a unique gift or addition to your decor then you will find it here.

Hello, I am a multi media artist, craftswoman and workshop facilitator, making rustic ceramic tiles, urns and keepsake pots for cremated remains, I am exploring making natural burial shrouds too and other items in ceramics and textiles, also some paintings and drawings and I facilitate workshops around grief.
My tiles are not flat, regular tiles they are wonky and irregular, rustic I like to call them, each one is individually made by me, by hand, although the designs are similar none will ever be exactly the same as another. (unless I ever make a mold for repeat designs).
With my offspring all now adults, I have moved to Bristol to focus on my art, having taken on a studio and joining NOA I hope to make a living from my work.
I love to hand sculpt one off tiles, my inspiration coming from nature and cycles of life and death and the interconnectedness of all things.
I have a selection of hand sculpted urns and keepsake pots but am exploring natural burials and natural burial shrouds, using specially printed organic cloth or crazy patchwork from natural fibre fabrics connected to your loved one.
I explore with plants, making twine and working this into some of my ceramic work.
I am setting up grief focussed workshops, where you can come and process your grief through stitch.
