Busy Weekend Painting....

Category: New Yard | Posted: Sun Sep 07, 2008 10:35 pm

I've been getting things ready for my web site, and upcoming BudaFest in December.
Here is a sneak peak at some tiles I did yesterday. They have to be glazed yet and fired.

This one will be set in a iron trivet. 6" tile.

This will be set in a wood frame. 6" tile.


This one goes in a wrought iron garden stake 27" tall. 4 1/4" tile.


This one will go in a picture frame.

Lots to do yet before I can crank up the kiln. Getting back at it. Just thought I'd share whats coming!

WOW, WOW and double WOW!!! Those big cats are absolutely terrific and the butterfly looks as though it could flutter off the tile at any moment. As for the sunflower - well what can I say except that I am in awe of your talent. I would love to own something as wonderful as those tiles to display in my home.

Those are truly gorgeous. That butterfly does look very 3-dimensional.
The Sunflower will look very pretty on a garden stake, please so us a picture of it and the framed tiles when they are finished.

Thank you Eileen, Toni and Kuntrygal ( like the new icon kuntrygal!).
I'll post the finished tiles when they are set in the frames and what not.
I am also working on ceramic plant ID markers that are round and have a stake end to them.

The colors will pop with the glaze and firing. I get like a kid waiting for Christmas when I fire it up. It takes the LONGEST 8 hours plus cool down time!!

A friend of ours is a tile contractor, and he a couple tile companies that are going to display my work for custom orders. I am excited about that!

I wanna cuddle those cats, smell the bloom and photograph that butterfly, they're amazingly life-like! You're so good at what you're doing, I'm awestruck. Good luck with the firing and please, please post more of your wonderful tiles!
