Where Have All The Flowers Gone
There can never be too many flowers, can there?
As I was making a couple of flower tiles the Joan Baez song, "Where Have All the Flowers Gone" popped in to my head and I started singing it out loud. I found it on youtube so you can listen or sing along too.
For these tiles, I textured the background and then added several different slip colors by dabbing them on. Next I cut out and formed each flower, slip painted them, then attached them to the textured tiles.
If you're in Florida, you can find my work at the 7th Annual Artisan Boutique in Inverness today, where I was juried in earlier this week. I have over fifty different pottery pieces in the show at various price points which I spent this week pricing and packing for the show. You can also find my work ongoing at the Florida Artists Gallery in Floral City an artist's cooperative where I'm also being juried. Look for my wall tiles here on my rotating display. Please check sidebar for locations. This post is part of the Artist's in Blogland show and tell Saturday. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.
