Some pieces, or perhaps a single piece, out of the kiln.
I wasn't that excited about these guys when they first came out of the kiln. But when I arranged them on this rock, which seemed to be made for them, I began to see them in a new way.
The texture and surface of the squares make a very interesting contrast with the texture of the granite slab.
The way the natural light reflects off the surfaces of each square reminds me of mirages on a hot summer road.
As a child, riding in the car, I was fascinated by mirages. How could something be so clear from a distance, and then disappear completely when you got close?
These reflective, elusive surfaces suggest things that are there and not there.
