Cute little gift shops all along the roadside..I think we stopped in all of them...well we wanted too!
One of many art studios I visited, was Rebecca Devere's in Kirkland WA.. close to where I live..I signed up for classes to learn a technique called Picasiette...Rebecca makes and cuts all of her own tiles. She taught us this technique..shown is her tiled salmon..it's gorgeous about 5 ft in length.. currently being shown at Gallery One in Ellensburg WA. Visit her site.she has amazing shrines and tiled art and paintings.
The CUPCAKE shrine I made at her class..I had so much fun making this! I think I know what to do with some of my imperfect ceramic pieces...!
