Dolls Head Porcelain stone wear tiles … made the tiles a few years ago. White slip clay, very delicate in green state.
I bought a gallon from a shop that was quitting business.

This is was a fun pair of frames. Helped clean of my short pile and I entertained my self in the process.

Tiles were inspired by nail hole woodcuts by by Birger Sandzen. A very cool artist.

Thanks in advance for looking at my work.

Regards

DAN

Nice Dan, really like this frame and the fact it is made from shorts.

hay personas a las que nunca se les acaba la imaginacion Dan y tu eres uno de esos privilegiados,el trabajo central me recuerda a los paisajes de los libros de ” el señor de los anillos ” y el marco que lo rodea con ese color y las uniones simples y profundas se asemejan a un tipo de arquitectura “cabañas” que he visto en africa central,una mezcla rara pero muy original. Perdona que no use el traductor porque se que no va hacer bien el trabajo con el castellano y destrozara el texto.
