In the last post you can see the pre-fired pieces, here they are after the glaze firing. Whale, Elephant and Crow.  Three out of four, for some reason Swan did not make it, . I've been having trouble with this clay batch. The trouble is cooling cracks. I am very disappointed because Swan was my favorite and I spend hours on these pieces! Not good. I am switching clay asap.

"If a child is to keep alive his inborn sense of wonder without any such gift from the fairies, he needs the companionship of at least one adult who can share it, rediscovering with him the joy, excitement and mystery of the world we live in.” Rachel Carson

Hospital commission complete

Here is the whole flock for the Mayo Clinic. They will hang in the new Jacobson Building pediatric family waiting area in Rochester, MN.
 I have been working with an art advisory for the past six years who has placed my work in various projects for different hospitals. All done over the internet! I enjoy these projects and hope that my work is enjoyed by people during some difficult times. 
Hard to tell from the pictures but there are three sizes, the largest 15x20" down to the smallest, 9x12". Check out  the process of the project--- I posted awhile back when I started the project, you can see the start of making them, and then again when I started painting them. Now pack and ship, yay!
