The tile mandala

First of my mandalas has come out of the glaze kiln...
I will be getting backing for it, but I want you to see how it looks at this point. You've patiently gone through all the processes with me by now!




I am considering mounting it on fabric, either a neutral tone or perhaps black.

Another ceramic artist at the Red House Gallery


I really like how Katherine combines sgraffito and glazes. But honestly I don't like the plastic plants combined with everything else.

Hello grandmother moon

 Grandmother moon said hi to me in the night, so I went for the phone's camera.

Fuzzy one with the buildings showing.


Amazing how I could see the leaves on trees as well as bright moon, July 2, 2019.  I know the moon was also full last night, because she woke me up again. This time I said hi, and went back to sleep.

Perhaps another orchid would prefer...


The turquoise with runny blue edges?  This one has more random holes along the sides, where plates of clay aren't overlapping, thus more organic looking separations. I know, where's the photo? I don't find one.

Raspberry red for the orchids...or...




Now I just need to go purchase some wood chips/filling stuff that they live in!

second mandala in the process

It's actually finished being built. But is slowly drying.
 I keep it pressed gently between newspapers and batts, with a light layer of plastic over the whole thing.  It's drying slowly and staying pretty flat.
Details below.
