We make our tiles from stoneware clay, they are individually hand crafted and are twice fired in our kilns. The Parchment tiles are made with rough torn edges which gives a unique artistic form. They are mounted on a 7 1/2 inches square black wood frame. A wall hanging clip, rubber wall protectors and a descriptive label (see individual tile picture for details) is attached to the back of the frame.
All tiles are Individually Boxed.
The label on back of tile reads...

Although the Celtic cross is commonly used as a Christian symbol, it has a history that dates back much further than Christianity. The meaning of the cross has different interpretations in various cultures and traditions; the four elements of the cross are believed to represent: the four elements : earth, air, fire and water; the four directions of the compass; the four parts of man: mind, soul, heart & body. The circle surrounding the four arms of the cross is considered a symbol of eternity.
