It's all about Screws

hola!!!

We have had beautiful sunsets the last few evenings, but again, it has turned cold at night. It was 50 degrees when I went to the track this morning....now, it is around 75 in the afternoon and just perfect. There is a very light breeze, some wood smoke in the air, and this weather feels like the fall we always had in the Pacific Northwest.






And, then last night's full moon above our palm tree.



Senor says it's all about screws........ I suggested plastic and duct tape to make the form, but he added screws...........okay, okay, okay.............
You know what? I think it doesn't really matter anymore because when you look at the end product in the photos below, you will forget all about how it came to be..............












Carving intricate details now.



So, you can see my capital and now, the cornice on top. One little note, if you are planning to make some capitals this weekend, don't forget to oil your forms and the little plastic bowl as well.
I forgot about that several days ago. And don't worry, all the columns are perfectly straight, it is the camera that is crooked.


A new batch of bathroom tiles ready for the kiln fire.





Below, after the fire.


some very pretty colors.................






que tengas buen dia.......
