Click to enlargeSign Naming a House uses Beach Glass

Commissioned by a grandfather for an exterior house sign. The high-fired stoneware doesn't absorb water and therefore will withstand freezing.

Grandchildren who like beach glass collected samples which I used in wells in the clay to personalize this tile which names a family's summer haven. A translation of "wamesit" is, "All are welcome."
