Chinese Zodiac Tiles

In the Chinese zodiac, an animal is associated with each of the years in the repeating twelve-year cycle. The Chinese characters for each animal are beautiful and I'm pleased to announce that I'm now making and selling a range of ceramic tiles decorated with all of the Zodiac characters.

The tiles are 4" (100mm) square and feature designs carved directly into the ceramic. The surface is finished with a beautiful bamboo-coloured, fully fired glaze. They are much thicker (8mm) than normal coasters so both look and feel substantial. They can also be used as coasters, since they all come with a thick cork backing to ensure they won't scratch a tabletop.

The full range of tiles can be ordered below. To work out which animal corresponds to a particular date, just check out Wikipedia's table. For example, the date 18th April 1988 would fall in the Year of the Dragon (17th Feb. 1988 to 5th Feb. 1989).
