finished and grouted

flagtruckAugust 31, 2008

Here it is with Vanilla Cream grout. Kinda blah but I can live with it. I was going to do a terra cotta wash over it, but will have to see. Too many other ideas to spend any more time on this one other than insert the wire for hanging thru some holes I left open in the neck. (That shouldn't take more than an hour or two to hit the

Now onward and upward...moved the purple pot to grout it this am and knocked a piece off at the bottom edge, so had to mix thinset and readhere. Now waiting for it to dry so I did 3 more edgers while waiting and have to go to WalMart and get some groceries.

Jane - the toe is a bugger and black and blue. I am having trouble putting weight on it,I will perservere and bring one of te blue pots in and work on it inside.

Flag, I wouldn't change a thing, its fantastic. It reminds me of some work of art found from thousands of years ago by some ancient indian group precise, colorful, and what everyone would die to have .

Beautiful, you are really a dynamo even with that poor toe.

This is perfect just the way it is, I really like the light grout. And I love your design and tiles! I could never make circles like those, they're really good, tight circles. I know you told us about keystoning, but adjusting the angles based on the size of the circle...that's where I get lost when I experiment with it. Great piece, simply beautiful!
