Fandango Friday (Part 2)

It's Friday again...you know what that means *wink, wink*
Without further ado, here they are...Fandango precuts!A little background about this collection..
For many years, my aunt and uncle ran a pottery studio on the Upper East Side in New York City. I was sooo fortunate to have taken classes with them and to have made pottery for nine wonderful years. It was through their teaching that I learned about the rich history of majolica, as well as the beautiful tin glazes and decoration of this ancient art form. These are a few of the pieces I've made over the years:Fandango was inspired by the earthenware, mosaics, tile work and motifs of Barcelona. The palette mixes red jasper, turquoise, and celadon with hints of terra cotta and glints of gold. When combined, I thought the collection resembled a snappy Spanish dance...a Fandango, if you will : )
So get out your castanets and enjoy!
ps: feel free to snatch the photo of the precuts for
your blog or website!
