'Words in Porcelain'  
'Scaffolding' by Seamus Heaney 
Seamus Heaney - Renowned Irish Poet
This is one of the first poems Heaney ever wrote. A beautiful metaphorical poem about marraige, Heaney wrote it in order appease his wife in a time of crisis.The idea of the poem being that the scaffolds are the integral elements of marriage, and that the wall is their marriage as a whole. If the scaffolding breaks and they have an argument, then they can be confident that their wall/marriage is strong enough to stand without the support of the scaffolding.
Materials - Ming Porcelain
Process - Raw Porcelain is rolled to create the tile, each letter is hand imprinted into the clay, which is then fired in the potter's kiln at 1290 degrees celsius, making it solid to withstand all elements. The art tile is then mounted onto a white frame (20cm x 25cm) , with any inscription you would like written under the tile, otherwise this will be left blank.
