Well it happened we turned on the heat yesterday and I dug out a blanket for sleeping last night.
October came in with its own agenda with snow in the mountains and a cold breeze blowing here.
The tiles are finished, packed and being delivered today.
It is funny when I am working on a group of tiles that they are more like components to me until the backs are glued and they are hung on a wall.
They seem like all parts and I can't pull the real image into my eye until I see them hung.
When I fix the backs on and the glue is set up and I am putting in the wire for hanging I have two nails on the wall and I hang each one just to see if the design carried through.
And it did.
The tile flat on a table looks flat to me.
The tile on the a wall looks sweeping and more alive.
And I feel better about sending them out.
Now- did I get a picture of said tile on the wall- no- I was too busy with the steps to do that.
Lazy potter that I can be...
These tiles will be given to the donors for a conference in Raleigh.
2011 NAAEE Annual Conference
Theme: Rooted in Time; Branching to the
I did think they fit the theme and I hope they are enjoyed.
Now on to the next thing- glazing for the small gas kiln.
If I lived in Boston this might be the start of my day... I think I will leave the traffic to the city folks.
I just have to watch out for the occasional disgruntled squirrel.
Best get cracking!
