Clear Black

My newest favorite glaze color is clear black, an Envision Glaze by Duncan (IN 1627). Clear black makes red richer, blues deeper, greens glorious. Alone, clear black fires to Prussian blue.

Although, most of the tiles for my bird mosaic are finished, I'm considering redoing many of them with clear black.

Ranting at the Post Office

It was distressing to hear from a collector that artwork arrived damaged. I packed it as if it was going to the Moon and back. I even stood in the post office and watched the postal clerk stamp 'Fragile' more than a dozen times on the box. I believed in good faith the various postal workers that handled my parcel would heed the message and take care with the 40 pound wood box containing a wall mosaic.

Now I believe, that on the contrary, the temptation to destroy was greater than any responsibility they may have felt, not only to a customer, but to their employer as well.

I'll be exploring other options for delivery, although I seriously doubt other carriers will care one whit more considering the tone of current society.
