In July 2011 I will have an exhibit of my tiles at the Fire Arts Center Gallery in Arcata. I am busy getting ready for it, trying to get a piece or two fired every week. Here is one that I just took from the kiln, of a red-wing blackbird. These are one of my favorite birds --- a true sign of spring. I am pleased with the bright colors I've achieved with high-firing (Cone 10, about 2300 degrees F.). My show will have cats, birds, flowers and landscapes.
