Spooner Creek: Wine Tag Tiles: Good Wine, Good Friends

Spooner Creek

This fun ceramic wine tag is handmade in Shell Lake, Wisconsin by the Macone family. Michael Macone developed a unique process of etching his designs into the clay, giving each tile a dimensional quality than can be appreciated by the hand as well as the eye. Each of these handmade and hand glazed clay tiles feature a vibrant image and some serious words to live by! It comes ready to hang on that favorite bottle of wine – great for gift giving (see example in photo).

Dimensions: 1.75"w x 3.5"h x .25"d

 

ABOUT THE ARTIST 

Michael Macone
Shell Lake, Wisconsin

Spooner Creek ceramic tiles are the artwork of Michael Macone expressed in clay. Michael began making pottery over 30 years ago, and continues today working with his two sons, Miles and Clayton, in their Northern Wisconsin studio. Early in his career, Michael developed a unique engraving technique that allows him to etch his designs right into the clay, rather than placing the designs only on the surface of the clay. This “real art etched in clay” has a dimensional quality that can be appreciated with the hand as well as the eye.
