17.5″ x 17.5″ Glazed one-of-a-kind Tile named Space Cadet. Most of my career was spent in oil painting until clay grabbed a hold of me and wouldn’t let go… Now I paint with glass on clay.. by applying layers of glaze in several repeat glaze fires .. a depth of color, crystal formation and texture is built up that just makes my heart sing to look at it… If you would like this tile mounted with a french cleat to make it easy to hang on a wall please check the box to include that in your price. This is highly recommended for tiles bigger than 12″ x12″
“Conversation with a space cadet …on a power trip? Is she stupified and caught in his headlights? ..I’m pretty sure he doesn’t need all that protection … oh, maybe from the clear light of a sunny day… as for her … she’s stopped talking… LOL”
Mounted & French Cleated
A French cleat is a way of securing a cabinet, mirror, artwork or other object to a wall. It is a molding with a 30–45 degree slope used to hang cabinets or other objects. The wall side of a French cleat can be mounted securely without having to hold the full weight of the cabinet while securing it. The cleat will not be seen later, so it does not matter where it is drilled; this means that it can be screwed into wall studs relatively independent of the lateral position of the cabinet.
Space Cadet was also a 1948 science fiction novel by Robert A. Heinlein about Matt Dodson, who joins the Space Patrol to help preserve peace in the Solar System.
