These days, you don't see too many round tiles-especially handmade ones. At the turn of the last century, however, they were quite commonly found on the fronts of cast iron stoves. These round stove tiles served as a colorful, durable (and heat resistant!) decoration to an otherwise drab household appliance. Now, the stoves are gone, but their tiles live on in collections-another testament to the durability of this medium. This Willy tile is our homage to the classic, round decorative tile form.

We suggest these glazes for this tile:
Transparent, Jade, or Oxide
