I Bee Getting’ Back to Work
After two weeks away from the studio, I am ready to get back to work! I had a visit from my mother last week, and a mystery illness the week before. Now I’m looking forward to getting back on an even keel.
Here’s the work in progress at the current point:
I know – that’s a very sad degree of progress since the last entry.
Here’s a detail of the flower center at the bottom:
The center is comprised of peridot gem chips, yellow crystal tile and black glass rods stood on end pushed into the thinset. I don’t think I’ll be able to grout over it because the peridot gem chips are so small, I think they would get loosened in the process. Not sure yet what to do about that. There will be two more flower centers done that way.
