The Wildflower series are the result of a collaboration between the potter Madeleine Vink, and the graphic artist Marieke ten Berge. The development and creation of these artpieces is an exact and meticulous process that requires more preparation than the standard tile with an image-transfer or even a hand-painted one.
Madeleine prepares the tile by rolling out clay and pressing out the tiles one-by-one, after which they dry overnight. The tiles that have curled up too much are removed and recycled. When the tiles are leather-dry, Madeleine applies a self-developed white coating. The illustrations should be carved out shortly after, to prevent the tiles from becoming too dried out and hardened out. After the illustrations have been applied by hand, the tiles undergo a two-week process of drying and baking, up to a maximum of 1240° Celsius. The tiles are perfect for decorating your house, or to mail them as postcards. They are heat and water resistant.
