Made of terracotta clay that has been wrapped around a wooden block. I cut into the clay with a wire while the wooden block still supported the clay and deliberately cut a small step into one side. I wanted to enhance that step with the surface marks and the red glaze and scratched lines do that. The little number tiles were prefired and then rolled into the soft clay. I liked the way that some feel out leaving gaps. They are the "lost numbers".
