Cutting the tiles (5 hours)

Each tile is about 1/2 inch think and never larger than 6 inches

Now for the scary part of cutting the carved clay piece into little tiles, well some aren’t so little. None of the pieces are larger than 6 inches. It was difficult deciding where to cut. I hope I’m not sorry about some of the decisions I made but we’ll see! I spent another 5 hours today cutting and then pulling out pieces and making grooves in the back so the thin set (glue like stuff) has more to hold on to when it finally goes on the wall.
