Spring is in the air
Meanwhile, I was putting in glazes on tiles. It is or can be a bit tedious at times as I bounce back and forth between glazes. I might only use 1 little dab of glaze for the inside of a nose, or eye, but that little dab of color is instrumental in the finished product. I realized as I am moving along the joys come in as the face starts coming together. I can start seeing the life of the tile open up to me since I am now pretty familiar with the glazes and the results I want.
The lambs are so funny, they are a delight as they are coming together. Sometimes the slightest change in the way I have laid out the faces can make them look more quizzical, or sneakier, maybe ready for trouble.
Since we have lived in a rural area I have seen how mischief animals can be, fences are only a challenge for them, how to get over, around or through. I have watched them flat on their bellies with their heads over as far as they can reach to get some of that greener grass.
We like to think they are on the "lam." I always imagine them getting back in just before the farmer wakes up for the day.
Who, us? We have been right here all the time......
We spotted at least 3 different types of bees and were happy to see a few honey bees in there.
What's coming out for tiles for the spring kiln opening; giraffes, sheep, flowers, sunflowers, preying (praying) mantis, bunnies, and more.
We also have a great selection of soap just in from Abela Soaps.
I hope you can find a bit of wall space for a tile or two or maybe a new mug or three.
