Copper, Silver, and Gold
Just finished putting the hanging mechanism on the back of this tile which I fired the other day. I added some copper, silver and gold accents over the textured surfaces of the sun, mountains, fields, and tree. The tile is made from cassius basaltic clay and is approximately 10 x 10 inches. It will hang flush on the wall or can be placed on an easel to be displayed on a counter, table top, or in a bookcase.
Here's another cassius basaltic tile about 5 inches square with porcelain sprigs. The next few days I'm getting ready for the Greek festival this coming weekend. I've been putting hangers on tiles, made up a few refrigerator magnets, and I strung some ornaments and pendants. Tomorrow I'm building another pegboard hanging system, then everything will be packed up and loaded into my car.
This time of year the gopher tortoise sometimes come out of their underground dens just to sit in the sun and warm themselves up. I'd like to join that tortoise, but this week I don't have the time. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.
