100 Days of Mudbird Ceramics. Working daily creating a different ceramic tile to be hung as an Art Tile. I've been working with pottery and slabwork since 2008 and keen to move it up a notch in a different direction. Exhibition & Auction of pieces at close of project to put towards pottery studio and upgrade kiln as I lost one in CHCH 2011 earthquakes.

Day 62


62/100 @100daysproject - with the return of the sun today after the crazy weather system we had plough through the South Island, I thought a butterfly was in order. I had a monarch butterfly in mind but I'm not sure how I'll glaze it... maybe molten orange glass in the cut outs? Each & every fine shape/hole cut with my knife, it's therapeutic with a touch of 'on edge' as each new hole cut threatens the strength of the hole or vein beside it... so it's a bit like playing chicken on the road & getting across! It made it through!
