I’ve been wanting to make a tile table top for a long time. A couple of weeks ago I went to Goodwill and bought this mission style end table that was missing a glass top. This is the first project featuring my newest tile design – the forward facing elephant. The last image shows most of the tiles I’ll be using. Some have been fired once, others are in various states of drying. This project will be a great opportunity to try out some new glazes and experiment with color. More photos to come…

Finished! The table came out pretty well, but in the future, I’ll select tiles with less texture and fill grout to the level of the tiles’s surface for a flatter surface.
