#32 and #66

2 more mosaic pieces done, numbers 32 and 66, yay! Only 6 more to go. I also, wrapped 13 more bags of garbage with aviary wire over the last 2 days, so they are ready for concrete.

This is a hanging piece that I made years ago.
Also, there is one of my mosaic rocks sitting on the top of the old stove.

#57 & #65

I finished grouting number 57 and 65 today, so that makes 14 of the 22 to be mosaicked completely done. The rest of my day is going to be spent tiling. If all goes well I'll have 5 more of the mosaic pieces done this week.

It feels official now.

It feel official now.
I received my exhibition agreement from The Morris Graves Museum of Art with all the important signatures on it, and in the current issue of The Palette magazine there is a mention of the show in the Museum Exhibitions schedule section. Since, I am a procrastinator, and have saved finishing Encased in Concrete 88 until the last moment I will be working very hard for the next month and a half to get it done in time for the concrete to cure before it is time to install the piece at the museum. I also need to up date my web-site and design post card for the event. Busy, busy, busy...

"Nicker" Detail

8 x 8 feet, wood, ferro cement, ceramic floor tile

This is a piece I made several years ago in memory of a friend.
The materials used are recycled. The wood is salvaged. The floor tile is left over, and recovered tile. The metal used is from an old style satellite dish that I disassembled.
