Adrift and Clinging
Here are two more wall sculptures, large flat tiles, which are about ten inches square. After firing I'll attach a mechanism on the back to hang them on the wall. The first is a vine on a brick wall clinging to life; the next a sailboat adrift in what appears to be calm waters, except the waters go on forever.
I like the blended and multicolored hues of the bricks; this wall sculpture is really growing on me, no pun intended. Now that I look at it I could have had the vine go beyond the brick. I might make another one and do that. I think I could change the water patterns in the second one, maybe the third color should have been green instead of lavender.
I made a large chick(en) tile, but it's rather strange looking, four ghostly chicks, I need to make a few more tiles to try and hone my raw emotion into something more recognizable before I post them. Posts about the albino mystery and more recipes coming soon. Happy Monday to you. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.
