Seeing the Seahorse
I am so excited to share my mosaic seahorse, finished and ready for the gallery. He is hopefully one of many of his kind...I find myself dreaming up all kinds of color schemes. Work on the next one commences in the next week or so--in vivid orange.
Post post postscript: Friends who saw this post and later saw the seahorse in real life clued me in to the obvious: There's nothing in these pictures to indicate the actual size of this work of ceramic sea life. He's a big guy. A full 29 inches. That's a lot of hours and a lot of materials...he's currently in a gallery, waiting for either just the right buyer or for me to rotate my stock and bring him home (my personal favorite option!) Meanwhile, both real life and online friends suggested I make smaller versions of my seahorse, to accommodate a range of budgets and decor needs. I have two now in the works--one 75% of the original size, and the other half. I've got an idea for a miniature in mind as well--perhaps even as a blog giveaway--stay tuned!
