More Mosaic Progress
We have been working industriously on the clay oven mosaic. It is such a joy to work with such creative, wonderful people, plus, if I were doing it all myself, it would never be finished! Stephanie and Elizabeth working on the Garden side of the oven.
Jerry, filling in the background of the Garden with blue tiles.
Laurel applying the barn design to the Farm Critters side of the oven.
We worked until it got too dark--and then some. Daryn and Laurel working on the Farm Critter panel beneath a shop light.
The Pond side has all the tiles adhered. The entire oven is almost completely tiled, but it will still be a huge job to scrub off the excess mortar from the the tesserae and then grout everything.
A bit of tiling yet to complete on the garden panel.
In September 2008, we dived into our dream of creating a small, sustainable farm. Neither of us has previous farming experience, but we have enthusiasm and many ideas for this little 10-acre farmstead.
