Mountains in Clay (Tile in Progress)
Originally uploaded by randubnick.
Today I went to a coaster painting session at Red Brick. All the artists associated with Red Brick are painting small tile coasters which will be displayed and auctioned as part of a fundraiser later in the year. I made three little tile coasters today, all mountain images. I incised the image into the clay with a pointed tool, then painted with the glazes. I don't know how my little tiles will look once they are fired, and I may not find out for a month or two. But this photo shows what they look like right now. The goal is 100 coasters total for the group, and we are just getting started. I really had a good time, and hope to get to another coaster painting session soon.
