I have been working on tiles, both glaze fired and pit fired. Flat surfaces encourage me to put scenes on them, but I am not sure why. I actually fight this impulse, since I like abstract more and impressionistic suggestions even more. Trees and birds and flowers, not so much. I was decorating tiles, dishes and vases with fish and undersea things, but I don’t want to do that anymore. And since this is the only area of my life where I can protect the need and desire to do only what I want, I better keep at it.
