The Chapel Hill library had a book sale last week and I found this book The Sea Children. The book is poorly written but it has beautiful illustrations, which is why I bought it. One of these days, I am going to make some decals..... the seahorse is for Linda Starr :)
I finished Ahab's Wife, loved it, loved it, very sad when it came to an end. So I went to the library and checked out Moby Dick, just to exercise my brain, I suppose. This is some tough reading for moi, but I'm enjoying it, and it has pretty pictures, haha!
My friend Barbara brought me some sand dollars from Shackelford Banks and I wanted to use them somehow on the barns, so this is what I came up with. They are really pretty, fuzzy and brown.
These barns are getting bigger and I'm making platforms for them to give them some show presence. Not an easy task, but I still seem to enjoy making them and I am loving how they look right now with all the texture and gouges in them.
I have the kiln packed and ready to go. It's supposed to be cooler here on Friday so I am going for it. I have to get some of my test tiles fired before I move forward with some of the new terra sig I have mixed up. I have found that when the shelves in my studio are completely full is is just enough to fit in this kiln. So, fill shelves, fire kiln. I will be doing a lot of that for the next couple of months!
