Decorative handmade ceramic crane tile

6 x 6 Crane tile done in a mocha cream gloss glaze.

One of the most frequently mentioned birds of the ancient Irish & British tradition, the crane represents secret knowlege, patience & longevity. The same symbolism is attributed to the crane in Chinese culture as well, where next to the phoenix it is the most favored of all the bird symbols.
Cranes dance in circles, which the ancients associated with both the movement of the sun and their role as guides, leading souls out of incarnation and back again to birth ( the stork?) Many cultures around the world were known to enact ritual crane dances, using nine steps and a leap while weaving in and out of a maze pattern to symbolize the journey of the soul.

  2. Nice post. I like the way you start and then conclude your thoughts. The picture above shows the detail of a decorative handmade ceramic crane tile. The round bird tile is lovely and double fired to get a beautiful texture to the tiles. Thanks for this information.

  19. The best place to learn Chinese online is in China. However, we understand that it isn't always possible to move here to learn Chinese language. The next best thing is to study with our experienced teachers in a virtual classroom. Online students enjoy the same excellent way of mandarin online lessons and custom designed courseware that we provide for our face to face clients.
