Apollo 11 50th Anniversary Commemorative Tiles

Apollo 11 50th Anniversary Commemorative TilesThis is a limited edition offer of only 45 ceramic art tiles to commemorate the first landing of astronauts upon the Moon on July 20, 1969.

A 3D image of an astronaut walking in a spacesuit and the footprint of Buzz Aldrin in the moon dust of the lunar surface are depicted on the tiles. The area of the footprint is glazed using dust from the NWA 11273 Lunar Meteorite as the sole coloring ingredient. The borders of the tiles are overglazed in 22k gold to symbolize the golden anniversary of this historic event when men first left Earth and walked on The Moon.

Though all the tiles are nearly identical each was made individually and hand finished as clay before firing and hand painted with glaze and fired again. The words and gold were also applied by hand and fired on so each tile is unique and individual as a finished creation.

This is definitely a one time offer. No more of these tiles will be produced by the artist. Each tile is individually initialed in the clay by the artist and numbered as part of the limited edition. Each tile comes with a Certificate of Authenticity signed, dated, and numbered by the artist.
