How to make a handmade panoramic landscape tile

I collected all my panoramic pictures from the city of Saint Petersburg for a couple years. I love the architectural landscape,  especially the view from the pier.


I made my own sketch  of the city.

I divided the sketch of the city into four sections. With the slab roller I created the tiles.  I left it to dry for a day. I put a board on top of each. I transferred the design to the tiles. I found the best stage to carve porcelain is leather hard. You have to work very fast to avoid cracks. I keep the four tiles together when I carve the city, continuing  the buildings over the borders. Using the same surface thickness boards helps. Remember to cover the parts that you don’t work on with plastic.
