At the beginning of the year I made some tiles at the high school where I student taught. Last weekend I finally I began the process of making the tiles into a book. When I first made the tiles out of clay I poked holes (for sewing the book together) through them before they were fired so I wouldn't have to drill holes once they were ceramic tiles. Been there, done that. Drilling holes through tile is a long and painful and often fruitless process. So I was nervous when I realized that the glaze I used to paint the designs was so thick that it filled in the holes and turned into glass when the tiles were fired. So much for my genius pre-hole punched tiles! I had to drill holes through my non-existent holes. I broke one of the tiles so I used a plain tile with pre-punched holes (yay!) for the back. I just painted it black to match the front cover. The pages are made from all shades of teal scrapbooking papers and cardstock. I like how it turned out, I think the bumps along the way make me appreciate it more. And so without further ado, I present my second tile book:
