addendum...


















addendum...
addendum |əˈdendəm|
noun ( pl. -da |-də|, -dums)
1 an item of additional material,

finished putting the pieces of tableeer no.2 together and it seems the new batch of clay was rather wet.....mmmm.... shrinkage.......

so i'm thinking i'd rather do a few recuts at this stage and be happy with the work rather than having larger spaces between the tiles, i tried a few rearranging of the pieces today and that's where i'm at... poor back is getting sore again...so here's the plan up bright and early tomorrow and roll out some clay for recuts!








But she looks lovely! I'm happy... and here they are side by side...

  1. Looks great from here- reminds me of glass.

  2. larger spaces between the tiles, sounds like a big pain in the butt trying to fit all that together. but when it's all over, it'll look beauty. i like the second one most, i think the black shape jutting up makes for a dynamic element for sure.

  3. At first I thought you had started working in glass!! The tables are sure beautiful -but I admit I would have FREAKED out to discover that some of the pieces had shrunk!! Good for you to be a pro and take it all in stride :o)

    hey jim yah it all takes time, you move one piece and all the rest need to be re spaced ha! it does look black eh it's actually a very dark blue, and very nice to stare into...yum
