Stop Trying To Control Me Hand Carved Ceramic Wall Tile by Gravesco Pottery Indianapolis

This one is inspired by my step-brother and his wife. They both have a great sense of humor. At a holiday function, she asked (or was it told?) him to get something from the kitchen. His immediate response to the request was, "Stop trying to control me!" and then they both bust up laughing. 

It's sort of become a mantra when I find myself in a situation where I feel like someone else is trying to control my actions, the outcome, or micro-managing me. With a people-pleaser attitude it's easy to fall into the trap of allowing someone else to control your narrative. 

You can hang this on your wall as a reminder to say no when someone tries to control you or as a warning to anyone who would dare try.

The stop trying to control me wall tile is handmade using a high fire white stoneware on my pottery wheel then hand carved using the sgraffito method before being glazed and fired. It's all a lot more involved than that, but this is sort of the gist of it. Each one is completely free-hand carved, no stamps, no sketching, no planning. I just dig in and go.

The back of the tile is curved inward allowing it to be easily hung on a simple nail or screw. It looks like it is floating on the wall creating an interesting level of dimension.

Measures approximately 5.5" diameter but honestly, that is a guess because I am typing this at home in my pajamas and can't read my own hand written notes on the dimensions. 

As always, all orders in the continental US are shipped at a flat rate of $5 because you deserve it! So go ahead and shop to your heart's content. It's only going to be $5.
