Neighbors Catching Up - Sold
23.75" x 17.75"

"Neighbors Catching Up" is the product of playful art making. Mark the surface. Experiment with glazes. Take shards, break and rearrange. Let the creative spirit run. Allow new possibilities, new relationships, new worlds. In this case what emerged were birds of unlike feather taking time to find out the latest gossip as the dragonfly imagined its future.

My approach was influenced by the teaching of my friend Ilana Shafir who passed away in 2014 at the age of 90. She was an internationally respected artist living in Israel who taught numerous workshops in the US and elsewhere. I am eternally grateful to have known her. Check out YouTube videos and other sources to see and hear Ilana and learn more about her powerful work and amazing life.

"Neighbors Catching Up" is part of the "A Kaleidoscope of Mosaics" show by the Austin Mosaic Guild at JGallery in Austin, TX. If you are interested in further information, please contact me at for further information. Sales tax (within Texas) and shipping is additional.
