Six Churches (‘Kerkies’)

by Naretha Pretorius

I have been working on a series of small ‘church’ tiles, each tile is about 11cm in diameter.  The series started of as a playful experiment to see how I can combine linocut with the jesmonite technique (casts).  I have completed six churches, yet I am still unsure of what they will become… but for now they can be hung on the wall or used as coasters.  People seem to respond positively to them, they enjoy the church images, the tile’s texture and the colour treatment.  Together they make a colourful display. 

They are for sale at R180 per church, or as a set of 6 for R990. (Packaging and postage not included)

Edition of 25.

Keep in mind when ordering a tile, that although the design is the same, each tile will look different as the colour treatment can not be duplicated and will turn out differently.  You may indicate a colour preference based on the images on display.
