Summertime Tiles Part #3

I made a lot of tiles in August 2019. As you know, it’s the nature of doing clay that it comes in batches, because you need to accumulate a kiln-load for firings. You don’t produce a tile from start to finish, then work on the next one. You make a lot and they travel the process together. Let’s look at such a group.

Here is the last group I have to show you. Low-fire clay, Velvet underglazes, fired at cone 06, August, 2019.

Blur Tiles

Hey, let’s combine two forms of art – clay tile-making and blur photography!

These are some 2″ x 2″ clay tiles from October 2019 that suddenly flew into motion.

OK, not really, it’s the camera that did the moving. Interesting effect, though, huh?

Profile Views in Common

Here are two tiles from August 2019. I have a fondness for the profile view, don’t I? These tiles feature a person in that position but then they diverge.

Holiday Pop-Up Shop At the Abington Art Center

I am participating in this annual event once again with some of my clay work. My husband and I attended the opening last Friday night.

By the way, this is the same art center where I am teaching a mixed media class that I’ve mentioned here and there.

We saw  quite a few people we knew there. Shout out to Andy, Eric and Sarah, Matt (my jewelry class teacher from the summer class I took), and Robyn, plus Rosalie, Jenny, and Beth from the art center management.

Here are some shots from the opening. It’s held in one of the exhibit rooms at the center. Here is an overview of the space:

Here is some mosaic work of one of my mixed media students. Like all the members of my class, she is accomplished in more than one medium. She attended the event and I was able to marvel over her work in person.

And here is my work. I think they have displayed it really nicely.

Here is the info on the show. If you are in the area, stop in and take a look!
