Actual size: 6" x 8" x 1/4" thick or 8" x 10" x 1/4" thick

Signed and dated; wire hanger is attached to the back. The tiles can also be mounted permanently on a wall, as with any ceramic tile. (Let us know if you don't want the wire hanger on the back.)

The symbolic imagery:
Martha is offering a basket of fruit to complete a meal that has obviously been enjoyed by a small familial group. This inset oval image is surrounded by culinary herbs and her name (with bees buzzing around). The border is created from fruits, vegetables, edible flowers, bread, soup and even a cup of tea (or coffee). 
A perfect pie rests on top of the "T." The entire piece is reminiscent of a Victorian greeting card.
