Once again another nice piece Dan. That it really a different looking glaze. I don't recall seeing anything like that on any of Laura's tiles….

Laura used the green glaze on her acorn tiles. She fires at a hotter temperature … around 2450.
Guess that is the reason it is a little different.

Once again Dan - your work is astonishing. Personally I'm more attracted to the wooden frames - not meaning to take anything away from the work that goes into the tiles - I just like the frames better. They are astonishing!

Dan of the chameleon avatar! Not only is your work always extraordinary but you are also one productive SOB! How do you produce the volume and maintain such a high level of craftsmanship?

Dan -

Another outstanding piece! I agree with Bob - you are very productive! Maybe that is because there are more than one of you . . . !

Productivity ? I stay busy. Working all the time. My real career job takes the weekdays, but I poke around in the evenings, hitting it hard for about two or three hours. Weekends are my time. Try to work 6 to 10 hours a day woodworking.
Thanks
DAN

Yes great job. My wife would probably call this a hobby of the month club. Getting involved in all kinds of things.

But these do go together. . Very nice.

Dan, I think you need to stop selling these on eBay. I think you are headed toward a major showing at a gallery, or museum. This is just exquisite craftsmanship. Really.
