I had a commission to make a tie tack with the Washington Monument on it for a first year history teacher. Sounded easy enough until I started working on my designs for the piece. Darn, it was hard to come up with something that didn't look like a giant..... you know what!
But, I think I did it. I moved it off to the side. Put the reflection pool in front and a few bushes off to the right to balance it.
Here is the design I was working from. (Easy to make in it's big form. Not so easy in the small form. Where's the 30% shrinkage clay when you need it?)
Here's what I ended up with.
As usual, the picture doesn't do it justice. Actually the photo does look a little like a ............, but it doesn't in reality. (I hope!)
