Decorative ceramic dragon tiles

Dragons, symbols of the primal energy upholding the material world, in themselves neither good nor bad. Representing the mutual dependence of light & dark, creation & destruction, male & female. The dragon embodies the unifying force underlying these opposites.

These 14 x 7 half round dragon tiles of ours look great hung on thier own above a doorway.

Celtic Knotwork

Decorative knotwork, the most identifiable type of Celtic art produced by the ancient Celts has been steeped in mystery for some thousand years. The symbolism is not that concrete, like the knots themselves thier meanings are fluid and abstract, more related to the universe & life in general than to spacific interactions.
This is our 3 x 6 Celtic knot border tile done in our most popular color, mossy stone.
It's a really nice color that goes well with alot of decors, but sometimes I do wonder if the name, mossy stone, also contributes to it's popularity.
