Love Song Medium Framed Tile – Customised with your words
The perfect gift for the sentimental creature in your life. You choose the lyrics or quote that is close to their heart and I make a tile to incorporate those words into a piece of artwork for their wall.
The image on the Love Song Tile is a stylised Irish landscape created with layers of textured clay. The clay is textured using vintage embossed wallpapers which adds another layer of nostalgia to the handmade piece. After the initial firing to 1000’c in the kiln, the piece is hand painted with blues and greens and put into the kiln for a final firing of 1100′ c. The piece is presented in a white waxed wooden frame and placed in a kraft brown gift box with my logo stamped on the front making a great presentation piece.
“The Love Song tile was dreamt up while trying to find the perfect gift for close friends who were getting married. They had almost anything they might need and still moved home quite often so I thought a piece in a frame would be easier to transport having its own built-in protection. I also knew that the sentiment was the most important thing to them. So I decided to be sneaky and ignore all protocol and didn’t deliver a gift before the wedding. I waited until the wedding day and listened to their first dance which I knew would hold significance for them and returned to the studio to design a tile incorporating a line from their song”
These pieces have been gifted for every type of occasion – weddings, engagements, new home, new job, new baby, retirements and thank yous!

4 Simple Steps
- Add the Love Song to your basket
- Write chosen text to the comments section in the checkout. This can be up to 50 characters.
- Add the date you required the piece to the comments section (3-6 weeks lead time)
- If you wish to have text handwritten on the back please also include this in the comments section and any note to accompany the delivery note.
Custom made pieces take from 3 to 6 weeks due to the processes involved in producing ceramics. I am always happy to work to your deadlines if they are achievable. I will contact you if any changes or amendments are required with your text or if we don’t think we can make it to your date.
