This one reminds me of the work a friend Jeffery has done - similar in feel anyway.
My husband keeps wanting me to count my tiles. "Which ones?", I ask. I have the 100% complete, glazed and glued onto the panels, I have the bisque fired ones waiting for glaze and another firing. I have the greenware ones drying slowly. Then there are the ones that are glazed but not all that great - my back-up tiles. If all else fails I'll use the best of them to help achieve 50, sad but true.
My little sawdust firing kept going out, going out, grrrr. Until I broke the Bird of Paradise tile I had glazed red/orange and green of course. I wanted the black background so it would "pop" - the flower that is, not pop in half like it did. To glue or not to glue, I may and keep it for myself. I don't have to decide that right now.
This is my kinda scary looking black and yellow gear looking tile!
