Hunter & Hunted

hunterhuntedOne of my all-time favorites.  When I was making this panel,  I was worried it might be too dark, but once the tiles were fired the glazes worked out much as I wanted them to, giving the panel the feeling of a scene taking place on the forest floor at dusk.  That’s one of the things I love most about these mosaic panels — you never know quite how they’ll turn out until all the steps are done!  8″x8″ SOLD

Dark Waters II

img_3377 A 6″x9″ panel with unique metallic glazes on the textured background tiles that set off the fish tiles.  Polished obsidian pebbles accent the background.  The fish tiles were made using molds created from actual fish so you’ll see the tiniest fin and scale details.  Currently on display at Cristina’s Cafe in Strasburg, VA.

 

The Singing Tree

The Singing Tree

I came up with the idea for this panel one winter when a flock of cedar waxwings landed in a tree behind my house.  They were twittering so loudly I had to come out of the house and see what was going on.  This panel was so much fun to make!  Every tile was cut, textured and shaped to fit.  Each bird is unique and most likely will never be found in the real world.  You can see it in person at my Far Ridge Ceramics studio.  22″ wide x 23″ high.  $1,575.00

Sun Lizards

Sun Lizards

Worship the Sun Lizards!  This panel was three years in the making and is now on display at Cristina’s Cafe in Strasburg, Va.  This panel would not exist without the assistance of my cats one of whom caught and killed the fence lizard but left it in good condition.  When I discovered it, I headed directly to my studio and made a plaster mold of it which has since been used to create dozens of tiles.  You never know where you’ll find inspiration!

 

Wild Garden Red Dahlias

IMG_5825

My love of gardening translated into ceramics.  Dahlias have some of the most incredible shades of red so they are the perfect flower for this vibrant panel.  I sometimes steer clear of the brighter colors for long periods and then just have to indulge.  This panel is currently at Cristina’s Cafe in Strasburg, Va.
