Several New Designs

Sept2014
Here are several new designs: dragonfly, new seal, walrus on the top row,
a swan turning into a salmon, muskox, and pendants on the second row, and on the fourth row a single owl, and an bald eagle.

It’s been a while since I last posted, but now that the summer season is over, I should be able to post once every couple of weeks. Since my last post in mid July, I went to Santa Fe, New Mexico for the Southwest Indian Art Market. I got a table just by showing up because a lot of vendors sell out on the first day. There were over 1200 native american artists showing and selling their work, it was amazing. I wanted to buy some turquoise, pottery, and woven rugs, but things were pretty expensive. I flew into Denver and my Dad, all of 84 years old, drove down with me and we had a good time. on the way back we visited Fort Union. It protected the Santa Fe trail and participated in wars against Mexico, Indians, Confederates, and then more Indians. I almost stepped on a what looked like a rattle snake, and workers repairing some adobe walls got pretty excited and called the park rangers to come capture it. The best preserved building was the rock jail. Rock holds up better than clay adobe over time.

    Hi Ed-I saw you at the Anchorage Saturday Market August 16th and I ran the Skinny Raven 1/2Marathonon the 17th and bought myself a Raven tile from you that afternoon. What a great remembrance I have of my Alaskan marathon! Thank you for my tile!I had a wonderful trip to Alaska. It now almost doesn’t seem real that I was there, and I do hope I can return one day . I just now went on line and wanted to respond to your Blog and thank you. And I will check out your Blog from now on.
    Enjoy the fall. I would imagine it is the time of year when you are busy making tiles? I wonder if you have seen the Aurora Borealis , and have made such a tile.
    Thanks,
    Barbara Dieterle

      Thanks for liking my tiles and buying the raven tile. I’m glad you had a wonderful time here in Alaska. It’s still a little light out to see much aurora activity.
