Thankful Thursday January 7, 2021

I am so thankful for being married
to an incredible man; honest, smart, talented,
can fix or make just about anything
and he also has the best sense of humor!
This photo shows him painting the underglaze
on the clay tiles he had made.  
Once painted he fired them in the kiln.
Then overglazed and fired one last time in the kiln.
Once done he installed them at his cousins home.
They are in the front entry.
Below is the finished and installed artwork.
It was installed in May of 2007 and still looks the same!

And many thanks to Brian for Thankful Thursday!
