My first sale to Israel: Another Look into my Haunted Forest Triptych Landscape

Another set of tiles from my Haunted Forest series. Four tiles are the full scene. They vary in size because each is made from a different clay. All stoneware, but that ends the similarity. Left overs from odd tile sets.
Early on … ... I broke a third of my tiles when firing.

My first sale to Israel.

Priority mail shipping was 107.70.

Made the shipping crate. Lowe’s plywood, and recycled skid pine. 20×24 x 4 inches.

Greene and Greene inspired frame with jointing details inspired from another lumberjock's style.

All works of quality must bear a price in proportion to the skill, time expense and risk attending to their invention and manufacture. Those things called dear, are, when justly estimated, the cheapest. They are attended with much less profit to the artist then those things which everbody calls cheap.

Way to go Dan, no wonder no silly avatar, we are into serious money here, and serious art. Can’t do the silly walk. People might think we are strange when we are strangers faces look ugly when we’re alone,,,, but i digress. Very, Very cool Dan, Like I said before, remember us we little people on your way up. Buddy, mike BTW this is my son and I on a salmon fishing trip up north.

Dan a great set of tiles. Nice job and congratulations. Maybe you should have them bought a plane ticket and then you could have carried them over!
