Celtic tree of life

Standing in the center of paradise, the tree of life is a representation of perfect harmony. This is our three piece Celtic tree of life set, it measures 10" x 21" and is shown here in a deep green glossy art glaze, one of my personal favorites. It's 1/2" thick, which is a little thicker than most of our tiles. Because of this we always glaze part way down the edges so it can be installed with a thinner plain tile.

Tree worship, Celtic tree tile

The worship of one of mankinds most potent symbols, the tree was widespread in nearly all parts of the world where they grew. They are the embodiment of life where the heavens, earth and water unite and an axis around which the universe is organized. Believed to be infused with an abundance of divine creative energy, forests came to symbolize mystery and transformation.

Celtic cross tile

The Celtic cross, bringing together the cross & circle, was a symbol associated with prosperity and fertility many centuries before Christianity. The cross representing the sun, male generative power and the circle the moon, female. Within Christianity it has come to represent the union of Heaven & earth.
