Another little trip

Tiles, tiles and more tiles. I would like to write about tiles in my next few blogs. It may be an interesting opportunity to show tiles that interest me and some tiles that  I have made. Some sketches for tiles may also be shown in the next few posts. But as a little teaser here is an interesting website from London England. http://www.museumoflondon.org.uk/ceramics/pages/ceramics.asp It has an interesting collection of European pottery from the Neolithic period to the 20th century. I fell in love with this website two years ago while I was doing research in preparation for my second year at Sheridan. Here is the link to the page where you can find these tin glazed (maiolica) tiles. http://www.museumoflondon.org.uk/ceramics/pages/category.asp?cat_id=749&page=1 This little journey will take us from England through Europe and end up in Turkey.
