ART From The Ashes ~ INSPIRE

ART from the ashes is sponsoring another event to raise money for re-hab of burn areas.  Only this time the artists selected to be a part of the show can submit thier own work for sale in addition to AFTA pieces.  Below are the pieces I created using debris from the Santa Barbara Botanical Gardens which burned a few years back.  The pieces of metal had been signs on various plants throughout the gardens.  I made the "posts" out of a cone 5 stoneware and glazed them with a lichen glaze to simulate charcoal.  Stay tuned for more about INSPIRE!
