This is a beautiful, large tile i found at Urban Ore in Berkeley the other day. It measures 20" x 5". It has a male medusa like mask in the center of a nice shell design and two, rather playful griffons on either end of an elaborate scroll design. It's executed perfectly - w/ strong 3-dimensionality. It appears to be slip-glazed, high-fire stoneware. the back is covered w/ thousands of little holes which were punched in in order to hold well to mortar. There's no signature.
