Cloudy Days Upon Us
The hand carved trout on the sign is a piece I acquired years ago from an wood worker who gave up his day job to be a missionary in South America. I have lost contact with him, but the last I heard he was creating large scale sand sculptures on the beach in Brazil, with contributions from admirers earmarked to those in need. The fish a little hard to part with, but the fact is it works perfectly on this piece and it's keeping with our up-cycling, re-cycling mission here in the studio.
Next step is to remove all the glass pieces, and re-lay them using thinset to insure the tiles will hold during freeze/thaw cycles the sign will be subjected to outdoors.
Grouting, sealing and more photos to follow!
