First of all- THANKS to all that complimented the prototype lantern in the previous post! I think that it may have been a good photo- the up close and personal view is a little rough. Maybe I should make prints of that piece- they may sell like hotcakes! Anyway, to appease you, I'll display the lantern in the studio on a shelf rather than in a box somewhere with all the other prototypes. :-)
Lantern #2 is well underway, as I twrite this, it sits in the oven for the second of what I expect will be four total firings. The photo will be used as a section of the lantern "landscape". It was taken at Point No Point on a rainy day in January.
After breakfast I'll be heading back to the beach to "shop" for sticks. Who needs Michaels?
