At the same time, I've been experimenting with some ideas... and experiencing some mixed success. The sort of results that tantalize and frustrate at the same time.
For instance- a client asked me to make a set of tiles for a table top. After a lengthy consult process, we came up with a 'dolphins in the moonlight design'.
Secondly- the base color came out as more-or-less aquamarine (with some copper flashing)... and pretty close to turquoise. The client explicitly told me that she did not want turquoise.
I can't re-fire... too much cracking already. I'll have to see what the client thinks... and we may need to re-design the project for smaller tiles.
Still- it was a fun and educational exercise.
