Glazed Mastiff Tiles

I thought I would post the finished Mastiff tiles.

I tried something new with these tiles.  The Mastiff head was not attached to the tile.
I was having some problems with warping and splitting so I thought maybe if I let the glaze seal the head to the tile their would be less tension on the clay.  This strategy worked.  No splitting and only one tile warped slightly.

Concept to Creation,
