Three New Four-Inch Tiles

Seal2018

Four-Inch Seal

This is one of several new designs for this summer season.

Four-Inch Otter Tile

This is a four-inch otter tile. Alaska has river and sea otters.

I like the eyes of the otter, so the new seal and fox designs might be reworked to have similar eyes. The x-ray style, common among the Alaskan Coastal peoples, is hinted at with the inclusion of the red ribs

FoxPlate2018

Thick Paper Cut Out of a Fox

This is what the paper cut outs look like before the pieces are separated and glued onto a matte board plate. The plate is impressed into clay to make the tiles.
