A new gallery for me, The Bell Gallery on Madeline Island! To the Moon and Back at the Phipps this summer, several tiles there and in Hudson Hospital and Croixdale Clinic also. Here are a few recent tiles and I am busy working on more, large and small tiles. Thought I'd add a bit of my poetry!
Muskie Caught on a Fly
Etched like film negative
Into experiential archive.
Am I as frightening a possibility
Through her glassy eyes?
Does she awake mid sleep to dream of me?
Do I cause her to awake midnight
As she wakes me?
This fine finned fishy,
This scaly gargoyle,
This fiendish friendMirrors the dramas and traumas
New Tiles, another kiln full. Some turn out well, I like this STARBURST. Some look rougher and I don't love them so much. It is like snapping a roll of film, some are good, some, oh well....
I find I love the really small ones like the BUTTERFLY below. But the small ones are much more difficult to make clear and to fill the tiny spaces and places with glaze. So I charge more per sq. inch for small ones. I like a collection of small ones
