astro tiles

I had a grand vision of creating a wall of oversize tiles with vintage etchings of astronomy, meteorology, mathematics, and physics. My porcelain is not cooperating. The size of the tiles is just too big for the strength of the clay. They twist and sag and crack in the high fire. Out of four, only one survived. I think I will switch to making a wall of plates instead.
