I think they're Italian

 

 I bought these tile roundels in Kalk Bay at Kwagga Books. The tag said "In the style of Luca della Robbia". On the back is a hallmark I haven't yet been able to identify. 
 

 Yesterday I tried to embroider fire. It's more difficult than I thought it would be. And I don't have any instructions....

Searching for Kwagga Books, your post on your discovery of the copies of the medallions made for the Hospital of the Innocents in Florence came up. Having photographed them on a previous visit to Italy I recognised them immediately, some information:
