Ceramics

One kind of man I impatiently scorn is the kind that looks bored if I mention Ibsen or ceramics or Aztec civilization but is interested instantly, alertly, if I mention my garters.
~ Mary MacLane (1881-1929)


I seem to have unintentionally made the theme not just ceramics, but blue and white ceramics.

I'm just amazed at what artists create. There are so beautiful, Tabatha. The mosaics are always something to behold, wondering how they possibly put them together. Thank you!
