Cache Pot

texaswildJune 16, 2008

This is a Riana-technique wire mesh/concrete pot that LADY RONNIE's mom, Mary, made for me w/scraps she had after making her Garden Angel in the workshop. (BTW - LADY - why don't you post a picture of it - it's beautiful). I'm in a mosaicing slump, so you can see on the inside where I took off one of the black diamonds cuz the point was protruding, and I was in such a bad mood to find I was out of silicon to put it back, I just grouted over the spot and hope when I get a plant in it, it won't show!!!!! Since I'm out of silicon, I'll have to glue some beads on later around the edges of the points w/hangy down beads at each point. This pot had so much potential to be beautiful, but my slump shows on it a LOT. I need a shot of inspiration and energy.

Well, I LIKE it...wish I could be this good when in a "slump"! I LOVE those bandana-esque shards and what are those silver/flowery etched looking oblong thingies...beads? They are cool! Once you get your other beads on and get a plant in it I bet you'll be happy with it....if not, my address is:.....LOL!

Very Pretty (frustration and all!)! I think we've all been at that point - too many things that CAN be done, but none that catch our eye.

Keep plugging away, tho - with results like this it'll only get better and better!

Slow, I wish I had a tenth of the energy you have during a slump! All your things are fabulous~ Your album/art is such an inspiration to us all.
Heck, you deserve a bit of down time to just bask in your garden and just
admire all the work you've done!!

Well if y'all don't beat the band!!! Thanks so much for your encouragement. It's Y'ALL that have the talent here. I just do my thing and y'all applaud. Makes me feel so good. CINDILOO - they are metal beads from HobLob. They're sold in small pkgs, but at Christmas time, I bought several long strands for $10 - much cheaper that way. NT - don't EVEN get me thinking of going out of town this time of year - a temptation - but the garden calls - have to hand water areas the sprinkler doesn't reach. I've just finished doing some re-decorating!!! Thanks y'all.

Hey Slow, I agree with everyone here. I would LOVE to be in your slump. Every thing you touch says Queendom.

I LOVe the crown look with the bandana shards and your diamonds are great!

I'll have to find some of those metal beads, I love how this works.

Just take a deep breath and look back at your art through all of our eyes, and I bet you won't feel so slumpy. Take care

MER: That is soooooo sweet of you. As mentioned in Fantasy Fish, the slump is slowly lifting cuz I finished those two projects that have been sitting on my worktable for weeks. I think I'm gonna recover. DD's bird bath bowl is next. Thanks for your sweet words.
