Three Birds

Here are three bird-themed clay tiles. Low-fire clay, fired at cone 06, and colored with Velvet underglazes, made in January 2019.

      Thank you. I’ve never done a job like that, though I’d be happy to make tiles and let people choose, I’d never want to do a custom job. Too much stress! But I would be very flattered.

      Thank you. I think birds can express just about anything, with their poses, and gestures, and I really admire all birds for their survival and fortitude in a very hard life, and yet they bring such a lot of pleasure to so many of us humans.

      Thank you. I return to the bird theme again and again as time passes, and I don’t know much about many birds, just that I love looking at them flying, and their gestures and mannerisms, and then of course, their songs, especially right before sunrise at this time of year.

        I enjoy going on bird tours with guides who know all about birds. My friend is a bird enthusiast and I learn so much about birds when we go for our nature walks. Right now, there is a mockingbird that hangs around my window serenading me.

          It sounds so pleasant, a bird who you recognize, and who has stayed around to sing! I often see birdwatching groups in the parks where I exercise and once saw a bald eagle (I stopped because a large group of people were blocking the trail, craning their necks, so I joined in). I don’t have ambitions to know much about birds, but I enjoy seeing them as they are and hearing their songs, always accompanying me when I am outside like that.

      Thank you. I really like that idea, too, bird-plant and earth connected. Their feet like roots, but they can move those roots. Their heads in the air, like plant blossoms. I love this idea.
